A Social Innovation Initiative from Atrium Health and YMCA.

People First

People First is a neighborhood-based initiative to make our city a healthier place to live – for all. Druid Hills, a community in Charlotte’s North End is the first People First neighborhood partner. Together with Atrium Health and the YMCA, community members are leading efforts to improve health – mind, body and spirit.
