Equity and Health Disparities

 
In line with our mission, the Health Center at Auraria strives to provide equitable and inclusive medical and mental health services.  We are committed to the provision of services that are both racially and culturally sensitive.  Our goal is to ensure that we are meeting the specific needs of Auraria’s diverse constituent base and are always open to suggestions that could enhance the Health Center’s ability to meet such needs. 

Beyond the clinical care that is routinely provided a the Health Center, we actively work to build relationships and collaborations with offices, organizations and other experts across campus to offer culturally-relevant and timely presentations, programs and educational materials.

National data documents significant health disparities within many marginalized communities.  These inequities may include access to care, prevalence of trauma or higher rates of medical/mental health issues.  The Health Center at Auraria’s professional staff, including our student staff, engage in professional development opportunities to educate our team about health disparities that potentially impact our students, faculty and staff.  We are committed to continually improving our understanding of health inequities, so that our team can be part of identifying solutions for the campus community.
