Elimination Through Collaboration
A New Force in Minority Health
There are several individuals and organizations across the nation that are dedicated to the task of narrowing the gap in the quality of health of underserved populations and providing access to much-needed preventive care and medical treatment. No one organization can achieve these monumental goals alone, however. Innovative collaborations that motivate and empower communities to take charge of their health and improve communication between health professionals and patients are big steps toward eliminating disparities.
In 2003-2005, IAMMM consistently implemented its motto—Elimination Through Collaboration—through a variety of educational programs, public awareness campaigns and collaborations with community and consumer organizations. IAMMM’s willingness and ability to develop critical partnerships ensures that everyone—from patient to health care professional—is fully aware of the impact health disparities have on our communities and what they can do to help eliminate this persistent problem.
