April - Monthly Toolkit
In April, Health is Primary focuses on health equity. Download the Health Equity toolkit, which includes new patient handouts to help raise awareness!
THE FACTS ABOUT HEALTH EQUITY:
- Urban and rural communities that have an adequate supply of primary care practitioners experience lower infant mortality, higher birth weights and immunization rates at or above national standards, despite social disparities (Phillips, R., & Bazemore, A., 2010).
- In the U.S. alone, combined costs (direct and indirect costs) of health inequities totaled $1.24 trillion over a three-year period (Health Equity Initiative).
BE A CHAMPION FOR PRIMARY CARE
ACOFP is a proud sponsor of Health is Primary, a communications campaign launched by Family Medicine for America's Health to help strengthen primary care and make America healthier.
Health is Primary advocates for the values of family medicine, demonstrates the benefits of primary care, and engages patients in our health care system.
