The mission of CitySquare’s health programs is to improve access to care and the most critical health needs facing South Dallas’s residents. At CitySquare, we believe that health is determined as much or more by one’s social environment as by one’s genetics. We understand that social determinants of health, conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship and age, are a critical part of one’s health and affect a wide range of health, functioning and quality-of-life outcomes.
