HealthRoots is a non-profit foundation established by the Grigsby-Rocca family in 1996. Our early and current mission is to assist and catalyze community health initiatives locally and internationally — through direct involvement in on-the-ground initiatives in low-resource communities, or by supporting the community of thinkers, researchers, and do-ers behind this important work. 

With a global focus by design, our earliest projects began in the small country of Malawi in east-central Africa. We also work domestically with public health researchers, academic institutions and clinical care providers, leveraging our collective knowledge and resources to advance all of our work in the field.
