Health Equity Report Released

Metropolitan Council of Governments on June 10th released their Health Equity: How Opportunities for Health are Shaped by Race and Ethnicity report. This report is a follow-up to the 2018 Uneven Opportunities: How Conditions for Wellness Vary Across the Metropolitan Region. The Healthcare Initiative Foundation is a proud investor of both the ‘Health Equity’ and the ‘Uneven Opportunities’ reports.

Metropolitan Council of Governments shares, “Health Equity: How Opportunities for Health are Shaped by Race and Ethnicity, is a tool to normalize the conversation on why equity matters and the importance of addressing the conditions that restrict opportunities for good health and economic mobility.”

HIF’s website also includes an interactive toggle map of Montgomery County’s life expectancy and its relationship to median income, level of education, and insurance. To view the PDFs of the Healthy Equity and the Uneven Opportunities reports, click here.
