      Our Race to Health Equity

      Our Race to Health Equity (ORTHE) was launched with the bold ambition that together, we can create a world where the color of your skin is not a determinant of your access to care, quality of care or health outcomes. In alignment with Our Credo, commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and legacy of taking on the toughest health challenges, we are turning a moment into a movement to rebuild healthcare from a diverse perspective by supporting solutions that systemically address racial health equity.

      I’ve always felt that part of the reason my father-in-law experienced such a heart wrenching outcome was the color of his skin. I am hopeful about the future of health equity, but there is still a lot of work to be done.
