Resources on Health Equity

The vitally important work we do at National Medical Fellowships develops the health care leaders who are laser-focused on eliminating unnecessary and preventable health disparities. Here we share a selection of resources that examine the pervasiveness of health disparities in communities of color and evidence why and how access to culturally competent care is essential.  The work is broader than health — it is deeply steeped in addressing inequity in education, in wealth, and in the workforce.
