Critical MASS for eliminating health disparities seeks to be a catalyst for the mobilization of a sustainable, statewide effort to accelerate the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities in Massachusetts. We must educate consumers and communities about health disparities.
Like others, our state lacks a plan to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities.
This must change.
Critical MASS is a state-wide coalition focused on the elimination of health disparities in Massachusetts. We seek to:
Build a statewide, multicultural network to advance the elimination of racial & ethnic health disparities;
Develop a clearinghouse for current research and practice initiatives related to the reduction of health disparities;
Create a statewide, strategic planning process for the reduction of health disparities.
What makes Critical MASS different?
We work with both public and private partners to create community change
We work within the existing regional networks established by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services to create regional action plans
We take a holistic approach to eliminating health disparities, rather than focusing on a specific disease
