A time to connect and collaborate to advance community health, well-being, and equity.

Long-standing health care disparities and inequities have been illuminated and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Systemic inequities, such as structural racism and economic disadvantages within diverse communities, are preventing individuals – and their communities - from achieving optimal health, leading to avoidable differences in health outcomes.

At the same time, the pandemic has elevated the need for hospitals and community-based organizations to connect, collaborate and take action to directly affect the determinants of health and improve health equity in communities across the country.
