Children’s Minnesota’s health equity team recognized as a finalist for The Root Cause Coalition’s 2023 Health Justice Award

Children’s Minnesota congratulates our health equity team for being recognized as a finalist for The Root Cause Coalition’s 2023 Health Justice Award.

The Health Justice Award recognizes organizations that have successfully implemented a program or intervention to reduce health disparities. Additionally, the award elevates the efforts of organizations doing critical work to address the social determinants of health and related gaps in health outcomes.

Children’s Minnesota’s health equity team has made a big impact in advancing equity and reducing health disparities not only inside the walls at Children’s Minnesota, but throughout the communities where kids live, learn and play. Throughout the past three years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, the health equity team championed community-based vaccine clinics for children and families – especially to the most underserved in Twin Cities neighborhoods.

The team’s passion and effort to reduce health disparities by bringing care and vaccines directly to kids and families in the community allows The Kid Experts® at Children’s Minnesota to meet them where they’re at and ensure they don’t fall behind on vaccines to keep them healthy.

Children’s Minnesota will be formally recognized as a finalist during The Root Cause Coalition’s National Summit in Kansas City, Missouri, on Dec. 4, 2023.
