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! Check out this new resource to help you train your staff to conduct SDOH screenings.

If you missed the April 30, 2024, “Addressing SDOH in Rural Kansas Communities” webinar, links to the recording and resources have been uploaded to Training and Learning Modules.

Save the date, October 30, 2024, for the third annual Kansas Health Equity Summit, to be held in Wichita, Kansas! Sign up to be notified when the agenda has been finalized and registration opens.
