Our vision is that Connecticut’s next generation will be free from racial and ethnic health disparities.
New Report: Health Disparities in Connecticut
By many measures, Connecticut is one of the nation’s healthiest states. Yet a closer look at health data reveals major disparities in health by race and ethnicity.
Community Health Workers
Community health workers can play a vital role in improving health outcomes, reducing costs, and targeting disparities.
More than an Insurance Card
Having health care coverage is a critical step toward getting the care everyone needs to stay healthy. But improving health requires more than that.
Beyond the Clinic
Much of what influences people’s health happens outside the doctor’s office. We’re working to build sustainable links between the medical system and people’s communities.
Making Health Care Better
We are working to create a care delivery system that rewards providers for keeping patients healthy, not one that pays by the amount of care delivered.
The people most affected by health disparities must be part of the policy decisions that affect their communities.
