Health Equity

Health Equity

For many Americans, health care is determined by where they were born, what they look like, or how much they earn, meaning that too many lack access to affordable and quality care. Everyone deserves a fair chance to lead a healthy life. For its annual Health Equity summit, The Atlantic is convening medical experts, health-care leaders, and community advocates for crucial conversations about creating and sustaining an equitable health system for all.
