Health Equity

Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut

2021 - $25,000

CONECT is an interfaith community organization that includes 37 congregations and institutions, representing 30,000 people. CONECT works to address health disparities, including the high rates of asthma in New Haven, but has found that a lack of standardized health data on race, ethnicity, and language makes it difficult to understand the causes of disparities, including major gaps in life expectancy across the state. This funding will support CONECT’s work to raise awareness about the importance of the collection and analysis of race, ethnicity, and language data in health care to identify and address the health inequities that affect CONECT’s members and communities.
