The Center for Inclusion Health is a Division of AHN’s Medicine Institute that strives to transform our healthcare system through innovative clinical care models, advocacy, training and research to better serve all people, including those experiencing social and health exclusion. We envision a health care system from from health and social inequities, especially for vulnerable and marginalized communities. This vision includes a world where people can accept care and embrace healing.
