Healthcare and Community Action Resources

Healthcare without Harm     "First Do No Harm" ... Together with partners around the world, Health Care Without Harm shares a vision of a health care sector that does no harm, and instead promotes the health of people and the environment. To that end, we are working to implement ecologically sound and healthy alternatives to health care practices that pollute the environment and contribute to disease.

National Food Access and COVID Research Team (NFACT): NFACT was founded by researchers from The University of Vermont, Johns Hopkins University, Arizona State University and University of Arizona, who encompass the executive team.  NFACT is led by Dr. Meredith Niles at the University of Vermont.

NFACT collaborators are implementing the survey in whole or part across 17 study sites, and data will be aggregated for large scale analyses.
