Printer-friendly version

A piece created to promote healthy practices during the pandemic

Pride Month is coming to a close. While we celebrate the recent Supreme Court decision that protects LGBTQ+ workers, the National Association of Community Health Centers noted in their recent Washington Update that a newly finalized rule change by Health and Human Services “eliminates some of the nondiscrimination protections in health care and coverage” -- a reminder that we still have a long way to go. Thank you to our advocates and hard-working clinicians for your ongoing and much-needed efforts to drive forward for change! Here are five reads from MCN staff that we shared this week in the world of health justice.
