2017 Health Equity Report: Uncovering the Root Causes of Our Health 

 

2017 Health Equity Report cover

In Louisville, health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy and reach their full human potential. A person’s identities, whatever they may be, should not predict how long or how well one will live. 

 

The 2017 Health Equity Report is now available! You can view and download the report here.
