We work to make sure that we can be healthy in every part of our lives, not just at the doctor’s office—at home, at school, where we work and where we play.
Health Access supports insurance enrollment and promotes efforts to ensure access to prevention and medical services. Its subcommittees are focused on data collection and analysis to inform future policy change efforts to address barriers to access to health for three priority populations: Boys & Men of Color, those experiencing re-entry from incarceration, and chronic emergency room users.
