L.A. Care supports its providers in their commitment to health equity. It is important as health care leaders to address social determinants of health, which often manifests as health disparities.

Addressing health disparities requires more than traditional healthcare. To stay up-to-date on our efforts, please visit L.A. Care's Commitment to Health Equity web page.
