About Our Logo

The Commission To Build a Healthier America logo is the symbol of a new mode of thinking that we hope to inspire about the factors that influence health in America. The elements of the logo convey the multi-dimensional nature of the problem and illustrate how many facets of American life have important impacts on health across society.

First, the logo resembles a lens where various points of view and ways of seeing any singular issue are possible. It also resembles the sun, which is a symbol of health and vitality.

Additionally, the logo represents the quilting of the American landscape, bringing together disparate elements into one greater whole, such as the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of the commissioners coming together to identify the best possible solutions and to achieve comprehensive, meaningful and timely change.
