Description
As the social and economic demographics in Central Texas continue to shift, the narrative surrounding health care access, community wellness and health equity for traditionally underserved populations is both complex and consequential. Health disparities reflect the differences in health status between different groups of people, and Austin continues to see inconsistency in the health and wellness of particular communities based on location. With the hope to provide all Austin residents the opportunity to achieve comprehensive and holistic health regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, income, or immigration status, changes in pre-determined access, policy and practice are essential.

Join community residents, thought leaders and health advocates for an exploration of the current resources, systems and approaches to addressing public health, access to care, behavioral health challenges, mental health stigma, and community services.
