The Equity of Care monthly newsletter recently received an honorable mention in the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals' 2012 MarCom Awards competition, which recognizes outstanding creative achievement by marketing and communication professionals. Launched last year by the AHA, Association of American Medical Colleges, American College of Healthcare Executives, Catholic Health Association of the United States, and National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems, Equity of Care is a national call to action to eliminate health care disparities by increasing diversity in health care governance and management; cultural competency training for clinicians and support staff; and collection and use of race, ethnicity and language preference data. The newsletter provides stories, reports and case studies to help promote equitable care and diversity.
