Promoting Educational Equity

In addition to being our public health lead, Jennifer Messenger Heilbronner has a passion for educational equity and success, and often works at the intersection of health and education. She is a board leader for All Hands Raised, a Portland-area partnership that brings together education, business, government and nonprofit organizations to ensure the success of every child, from cradle to career. Through her leadership with All Hands Raised, Jennifer was recently selected to join national education leaders on the Strategic Plan Advisory Committee for StriveTogether, a national network of more than 70 partnerships advancing educational equity.
