At AltaMed, we believe that your ZIP code should not be the primary determinant of your health. As we rebuild, we need to reinforce the strengths of our communities, giving all families access to affordable care with quality physicians and facilities.
Lack of transportation or physical means to access health and human services
Poverty and lack of adequate insurance coverage
Healthcare education, literacy, and lack of internet access
Lack of culturally competent care
The work we do in our clinics is just the tip of the iceberg. AltaMed must champion a thoroughly comprehensive approach to achieve meaningful and lasting impact in people’s lives.
We’ll occasionally email you about AltaMed Foundation’s impact in your community
Providing electronic devices to patients will allow them to communicate with care coordinators and schedule medical appointments for family members.
Expanded recruitment and training of culturally competent medical providers who understand and can communicate with patients, will lead to more consistent and effective care.
Encouraging patients to vote and become civically active will influence the selection and priorities of elected representatives.
SUPPORTING FUTURE NURSES
The world needs nurses now more than ever. Providing a transformational education to future nurses via the AltaMed Nursing School Collaborative, in partnership with the University of La Verne and the Annenberg School of Nursing, is creating ladders of opportunity for future nurses
We are working to combat health disparities and empower communities to stay happy and healthy for generations to come, but we need the support of our donors to maximize impact and longevity. Your generous support will directly help us address disparities in our communities.
One-time gifts are welcome, but ongoing gifts will help even more. Donating once will positively impact one family, but your ongoing support will change the lives of thousands.
