In its recent Health Equity Profile and Call to Action, the New England Regional Health Equity Council (RHEC) called for leaders and stakeholders in the region—with its growing racial and ethnic diversity—to collaborate on tackling inequities before they grow more dramatic. Our first-of-its kind report, which documents the prevalence of health disparities experienced by adult racial and ethnic minorities and adults with disabilities, provides a regional and state-by-state snapshot of health inequities. In essence, the reports identifies a problem in New England and provides a strong case to address the challenging issue of health disparities by recommending regional leaders work collaboratively to address underlying issues. Ideally, I would like to see a regional health equity summit take place. To view/download the full article please see below.
