Welcome to Health Equity in Michigan!
What do we do? We fight the factors that keep people and communities from being healthy. Think of it as leveling the playing field. We work to eliminate distractions like food deserts (areas that lack good grocery markets), food swamps (areas with too much fast food), overcrowded clinics, lack of coverage and broken infrastructures.
Health equity efforts include executing projects that help build awareness of the prevalence of heart disease in minority communities and raise funding for scientific research to improve cardiovascular disease and stroke outcomes in minority communities.
What does that mean?
Health Equity activities include faith-based programs such as:
Our work takes place in churches, schools, social/fraternal organizations, community groups and organizations, family reunions, barber shops, beauty salons and wherever people can benefit from our efforts to inspire and support healthier living.
Get involved in creating healthy change for our community today!
