Our Philosophy

MATRIX Public Health Solutions, Inc., a social enterprise, embraces the notion that health is more than the absence of disease or infirmity and includes physical, emotional, psychological and social well-being.  Our mission is to strengthen and support communities, organizations and systems so that individuals can live healthier, safer, and more productive lives.

Each day research reveals new avenues to strengthen health and human services work, yet a tremendous gap remains in translating new knowledge into everyday practices.  MATRIX helps governments and organizations make meaningful transitions from research to practice by combining science and analysis in approachable formats. Understanding the context, MATRIX adeptly works in local neighborhoods and around the world.

MATRIX’s primary areas of work include research, evaluation and incorporation of proven techniques and practices into health and human services programs.  Our experience and skills allow us to transcend the public sector to provide strategic guidance on corporate giving as well as data analytics.

MATRIX is hands-on, implementation-oriented, and results-driven.

Robert Kennedy“Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world’s ills – against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence….Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation…”
 (Robert Francis Kennedy, 1925-68)
