2018 North Carolina Health Equity Report

The NC Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities in the NC Department of Health and Human Services recently released its Health Equity Report for 2018, which shows progress and areas for continued improvement for a healthier North Carolina. “The report provides clear data on health disparities across a variety of conditions and metrics, like breast cancer, infant mortality, heart disease, obesity, the opioid crisis and insurance coverage status,” said Cornell Wright, executive director of the N.C. Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities. “While it details some areas where we have made progress in closing gaps and addressing inequities, it also illustrates how much work we have left to do to build a healthier, more equal state.”
