How Can We Give Children the Best Chance to Succeed?
Sometimes health investments are hidden in plain sight. LIIF President & CEO, Nancy O. Andrews, released a new blog post describing how LIIF came to discover its role in promoting community health and how we continue to find innovative ways to partner with the health sector.

More specifically, we need to translate the lessons of the recent knowledge revolution into practice—and ensure that all children have a chance to live in a high-opportunity neighborhood that will give them the best chance to succeed in life.”
