Our Mission

Inspiring change, empowering people, and advancing knowledge to improve public health.

Life is a journey that we must travel no matter how bad the roads or the weather. The EXIT TEAM meets people, organizations, and communities where they’re at and provides a roadmap to stop, think, and act.

Every stop sign is not a dead end. An exit and change of directions is sometimes all you need to remap your life.
