Health equity means every community member has equal access and opportunities to quality health. However, factors like poverty and discrimination make it difficult for some communities to thrive.
People who live in urban areas, near highways, or in traditionally underfunded areas of cities are oftentimes the same people who don’t have access to quality living, such as access to fresh food or specialized medical professionals.
At Make the Road Nevada, we work hard to remove obstacles for these community by providing reliable and accurate resources to these communities. We also advocate for access to specialized medical professionals and accessible medical information in native languages.
