Health Equity Accelerator
We welcome you to the Health Equity Accelerator
The Health Equity Accelerator is an ambitious and aggressive approach to eliminating the race-based health equity gap that exists throughout the healthcare industry in the U.S. Our health equity report will provide you with an in-depth look at our approach, introduce you to the people who are propelling The Accelerator forward, and provide insight into the work ahead of us.
We are coupling Boston Medical Center's deep experience in health equity with data-driven clinical insights and community-based research efforts to make healthcare equitable for people of color everywhere.
We are in the early stages of deploying the Health Equity Accelerator today, but we are moving quickly because this issue demands urgent attention and action. If you are interested in partnering with the Health Equity Accelerator as a researcher or as a community leader, please email us at [email protected].
