In honor of National Minority Health Month, NACHC welcomed civil rights leaders from the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), UnidosUS and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to discuss how health centers have played a lead role in bringing healthcare to vulnerable communities. Community Health Centers were born out of the Civil Rights Movement. The idea that we could fight poverty and empower communities with health and opportunity came from visionary community activists and reform-minded physicians. Today health equity remains a top priority for our country.
Watch the discussion to hear ideas about how health centers can lead our nation out of the COVID-19 pandemic and into the future with a more equitable healthcare system. Listen to this discussion as a podcast.
