The de Beaumont Foundation’s mission is to transform public health in the United States by improving the effectiveness and capacity of local and state health departments.

The de Beaumont Foundation believes that a strong public health system is essential. The Foundation works to transform the practice of public health through strategic and engaged grantmaking. Programs funded by the Foundation build the capacity and stature of the public health workforce, improve public health infrastructure, and advance the distribution and relevancy of information and data in the field.


The Practical Playbook: Public Health & Primary Care Together is an interactive, web-based tool that helps primary care and public health groups find productive ways to work together, from planning and implementing a project to evaluating its outcomes and finding ways to sustain it in the future. The de Beaumont Foundation, Duke University Medical School's Department of Community and Family Medicine, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have developed The Practical Playbook through robust collaboration in an effort to improve population health by bringing primary care and public health together.
