Driving Change Together

Long-standing health care disparities and inequities still persist. Systemic drivers such as structural racism and economic disadvantages have resulted in disproportionate health outcomes across different patient populations. Education, safe and affordable housing, transportation and nutritious food access all have a significant impact on the quality and quantity of an individual’s life and overall health.

Join us for the upcoming Accelerating Health Equity Conference, where leaders and organizations focused on accelerating health equity will work to continue driving change together.
