Learn more about The Kraft Center for Community Health

The Kraft Center for Community Health was established in 2011 by a generous gift from the Kraft family to Partners HealthCare to expand access to high quality, cost effective health care for low-and moderate-income individuals and families.  

Kraft Center programs are designed both to:

  1. Develop a new generation of physician-leaders committed to tackling the challenge of health inequality at the policy, management, and research levels.
  2. Recruit and retain top-notch physicians and nurses in the community-based practice settings that are often the first or only point of health care for many low-and moderate-income individuals and families.   


The Kraft Center will also play an important role in developing and disseminating models for innovative training and leadership in community health that highlight the relationship between academic medical centers and community health practice.
