About HPC

We connect underserved communities with the knowledge, services, and resources they need to live healthier lives.
Our Focus Areas

Health Promotion Council addresses chronic disease prevention and management through direct service, capacity-building, and policy- and systems-change initiatives. Using this approach, HPC empowers individuals and families, and addresses the environment in which they live, work, learn, and play.

Health Promotion Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, was founded in 1981 to implement community-based hypertension education and control programs. Known then as Southeastern Pennsylvania High Blood Pressure Control Program and funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, it was as part of a national hypertension control effort organized by the National Heart Blood and Lung Institute (NHLBI).  When NHLBI disease control efforts broadened to include cholesterol and tobacco control, HPC took on these additional disease prevention concerns and changed its name accordingly.
