Increasing graduate medical education residencies

Empire Health Foundation's scratch cooking strategy sustainably moves the dial on childhood obesity. The Foundation has successfully partnered with 10 suburban, rural, tribal, and metro core school districts to implement this strategy.
Sustainable systems change
Within two years of implementing scratch cooking strategies, school district nutrition services see an increase in net revenue!
Building nonprofit capacity
Empire Health Foundation's Capacity Building program boasts a 1900% leverage rate in its efforts to bring external funding to its seven-county region. For every $1 the Foundation invested in the community from its endowment, its Capacity Building program brought another $19 from outside sources!
