About Faith & Health

The Big Picture

Our nation’s religious diversity is a key asset as we build healthier communities where everyone belongs. Interfaith America is working to leverage that strength throughout the health ecosystem.

The Opportunity

Most of our neighbors see religion as a key part of their personal and social lives. And communities facing barriers to health care often turn to faith-based organizations to bridge gaps in information and access. Together, these indicators point to the need to engage our nation’s religious diversity thoughtfully and fruitfully in health-related settings.

What We Do

At Interfaith America, we’re building communities of practice committed to unlocking the positive potential of religion in health-related settings. From undergraduate and graduate health professions programs to health-focused faith-based organizations to health system and public health leaders, we’re inspiring, equipping, and connecting those who are poised to bridge the gap between religion and health to promote individual and community flourishing.
