Guided by a commitment to sustainability, a desire to empower through education, and a focus on accountability, WellShare partners with communities and health care providers to design, implement, and evaluate health programs that respond to the needs of each population we serve.
Our life-changing work takes place in both Minnesota and East Africa, enabling us to reduce health disparities and provide community members with the essential knowledge and care they need to take charge of their own health.
