Health equity

The goal of Healthy Androscoggin’s health equity programming is to help local healthcare and wellness providers improve their cultural competency and increase access to care for diverse populations.

Health Equity in our community

Health equity means that everyone has a fair opportunity to live a long, productive and healthy life. Conditions in the places where people live, learn, work and play affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. Healthy Androscoggin works to address these health inequities through our projects and programs.
