The Humana Foundation announced it is investing $7.6 million in eight communities across the southeastern United States to address social determinants of health (SDOH), according to a recent press release. The most recent investment is part of the philanthropic organization’s Strategic Community Investment program, which aims to address some of the most common social determinants of health, including post-secondary attainment and sustaining employment, social connectedness, financial asset security, and food security. As part of its ongoing program, the foundation recently engaged in two new investments in New Orleans totaling $1 million. The investments will address financial asset security, post-secondary attainment and sustaining employment and food security. Additionally, the Humana Foundation will continue its existing investments with ten organizations in seven other communities, including Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
