Access to Care
We are dedicated to eliminating disparities in health care access and outcomes for multiethnic communities all over Southern California and what that means is understanding the unique needs of everyone we serve. If someone comes from a group that’s more likely to have higher risks for heart disease, we look not only at clinical interventions but community resources that can help them live healthier. And if those community resources aren’t available, we do everything we can, including working with elected officials, to help make them a reality.
AltaMed Foundation recognizes just how critical it is to provide equitable and accessible health care to their communities, as well as the importance of actively working to eliminate social determinants of health. These health disparities include: transportation, access to healthy foods, education, and many others.
AltaMed Foundation is committed to serving our communities, but also empowering them to make a difference. It’s important to lead and work collaboratively to improve the health of our community. We want to involve partnerships and coalitions to mobilize resources to influence systems, programs and practices.
