Health Equity Resource Hub
KFMC and our partners believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to lead a healthy life, regardless of their background, identity, or socioeconomic status. The goal of this resource hub is to provide healthcare professionals, organizations, and communities with the knowledge, tools, and inspiration they need to dismantle health disparities and foster equitable healthcare solutions.
As you navigate through our website, you’ll find a collection of high value resources that can help you make informed decisions, raise awareness, and take action. Together, we can work towards a future where everyone has equal access to quality healthcare, regardless of their circumstances.
New Resource! We are happy to add a new resource to the Health Equity Resource Hub. The CHW Sustainability Tool Kit provides information to maximize reimbursement of Community Health Workers. It was developed with the support of Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) and the Health Forward Foundation.
If you can’t find what you are looking for, or have a suggestion for a great resource you’d like to share, please let us know!
