Health equity is when all members of society enjoy a fair and just opportunity, having equal access to resources, to be as healthy as possible. As we take the month of February to recognize and reflect on the historical struggles of the Black community and celebrate how far they have come and accomplished, we are reminded of the inequities that still exist.
It is our goal and our desire to provide everyone with the opportunity to be as healthy as they can be and to eliminate barriers and health disparities. To ultimately achieve health equity, we are working on improving our understanding and appropriately addressing the needs of all populations culturally, linguistically, and environmentally, all the while ensuring health equity is integrated into all we do for a healthier and stronger Community. It will take time and hard work, but we will get there step by step.
