Our communities – where we live, learn, work and play – can have an even greater effect than our medical care on how long and how well we live. This reality informs the Family Information & Navigation Desk (FIND) Program at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, which was born from our medical staff's desire to move beyond a focus on biological and behavioral explanations of illness. FIND strives to understand the root causes of health inequities and take a preventive approach to protecting the health of a population.
