Equal Health for All
Disparities are the social detriments that prevent people from living a safe and healthy lifestyle.
Understanding Health Disparities
Good health starts in our daily lives. But, realistically, we can only work with the choices available to us. If we have limited options because of where we live, learn, work, or play, it can harm our ability to lead a healthy lifestyle. People with limited options face “health disparities” that can lead to a very different level of health or life expectancy than the average population.
