For the past ten years, we have been working together as a community coalition to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities. With leadership from the Institute for Family Health, the support of many funding sources and the involvement of thousands of our neighbors, we’re creating change to make health equality a reality. Recently, we were named a National Center of Excellence in the Elimination of Disparities so we can continue to expand our advocacy and education efforts city and state-wide.
