Delivering Health Care Access to Texans Where They Are

Graphic says "Your location, ethnicity or occupation should not determine your access to quality health care."

Health disparities exist all around us.

  • They exist for the woman working two jobs who delivers a preterm baby after complications caused by chronic stress.
  • The Texas farmer whose high blood pressure goes undetected because he can’t drive two hours to the nearest doctor.
  • The young boy suffering life-threatening asthma attacks and living with a parent who smokes.
  • The family besieged by diabetes caused by a diet of corner store food and soda.

These are all different people living in different places and facing different problems. Every Texan has the chance to make a difference in the lives of those around them. Each day we make a choice to directly impact others. Help HSC make a difference in the lives of your fellow Texans. 


HSC launched the Health Disparities Campaign raising awareness and supporting innovative programs

Make a choice to end health disparities.

Breaking down the barriers of health disparities requires many different types of programs for all Texans. With focus, determination, and great effort from partners, we can end health disparities.
