Health Equity Work Group

The 2021 Health Equity Work Group, in response to the Standing Advisory Committee’s (SAC) desire to explore MHBE’s role in addressing health disparities, will work to develop actionable recommendations for MHBE to reduce racial and ethnic inequities in health coverage enrollment, health care access, treatment, and outcomes.

The group will meet eight times between August and November on the dates listed below.

The group will explore the role of various topics in reducing disparities and advancing health equity, including:

  • Data collection and evaluation
  • Social determinants of health, including systemic barriers
  • Access to health insurance and health care

The group will focus on strategies that address adverse health outcomes disproportionately faced by Black and Hispanic Marylanders, as well as by other populations experiencing inequities in health coverage and health care in Maryland.

Meeting Dates

These meetings are open to the public.
