Houston

Texas

Greater Houston is a thriving metropolitan area with a large and diverse population spanning nine counties and 10,000 square miles. Within these geographic boundaries, there are numerous communities, each with a unique sociodemographic and cultural fabric, collaborating to implement initiatives that address social, economic, and health inequities. We’ve learned through our Bold Goal work that true and lasting progress requires multiple sector involvement, ongoing collaboration, stakeholder commitment, and long-term investment. Humana is thrilled to be a part of the collaborative effort, supporting the work of our community partners and addressing the physical, mental, and social barriers to health in Greater Houston.
