SHIRE AT A GLANCE
Established in 1997, the Summit Health Institute for Research and Education, Inc. (SHIRE) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the promotion of health and wellness for all people. SHIRE works to eradicate health disparities and aid vulnerable populations in attaining optimal health. Communities, government agencies, corporations, and foundations look to SHIRE as an effective and trusted resource to identify inequities, propose solutions, and galvanize grassroots groups to address access to health care and quality of care issues among the underserved, particularly communities of color.
 
SHIRE WELLNESS CIRCLES MOVE INTO HIGH GEAR

SHIRE has partnered with AmeriHealth Caritas District of Columbia (ACDC) since 2014 to conduct an exciting new program for ACDC members with diabetes and hypertension. Wellness Circles offer encouragement and tools to help members “take charge of their health”. Wellness Circles offer information on healthy eating, importance of movement, managing stress and medications and basics about diabetes and hypertension. Partners plan conduct Wellness Circles in every DC ward. Read More
