Elizabeth Farrell, Development Associate
The fight for health equity requires an engaged community of thoughtful activists acknowledging that the mission for health equity and the larger goal for social justice are inextricably linked, and must be addressed in parallel. I am so proud to be working with GHC -- an organization that applies an intersectional, holistic approach to the health equity mission.
