Patient and community services

VCU Office of Health Equity collaborates with VCU Health and community organizations to develop and implement health-related social needs screening and referral models, such as the Anthem Food is Medicine grant with Feed More and the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association's Upstream QI Learning Collaborative model. We also work to align with concurrent efforts led by the VCU Health Division of Community Health.
