This has been a transformational year in addressing health inequities.
Consumers, who are the heart of our work, have helped us gain a deeper understanding of racism, bias and the social barriers they face every day in staying healthy and accessing equitable quality care. We must listen carefully in order to move towards equitable solutions.
Even today, new health care programs and regulations go into effect without ever asking consumers- What works best for you?
It’s time to elevate the consumer voice to drive the agenda for meaningful change to eliminate barriers and health inequities.
The Consumer Health Equity Group brings together consumers and community advocates to identify the pressing issues, set achievable goals and work together with health equity and community groups to take action on our shared mission.
