Health equity is the ethical and human rights principle or value that motivates us to eliminate health disparities. It means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy, mentally and physically, as possible. This requires removing obstacles, including those that are socially determined, to health. Health equity is both a process and a measurable outcome whereby health disparities are reduced or eliminated. Health Equity Research is the process of developing and evaluating mechanisms to reduce health disparities.  This website is a clearinghouse for ideas, collaborations, information about funding, and building connections within the LCOM, UVMMC, University of Vermont and other Vermont communities to support and enhance Health Equity Research.
