Baltimore City Local Health Improvement Coalition (LHIC)

Baltimore City LHIC

The Baltimore City Local Health Improvement Coalition (LHIC) is a state-mandated convening body of key stakeholders led by the Baltimore City Health Department for the purposes of supporting the improvement of health outcomes throughout Baltimore City. Representatives from healthcare systems, community-based organizations, faith-based institutions, businesses, foundations, and community members from across the city convene to drive improved outcomes at the population level for three public health priorities: diabetes, care coordination, and social determinants of health (SDOH).

We serve and work with integrity. We hold each other and ourselves accountable through an equitable lens.
