PROVIDENCE - R.I. Executive Office of Health & Human Services Secretary Eric J. Beane hosted a community day in the Olneyville neighborhood of Providence for his health cabinet in partnership with ONE Neighborhood Builders, the backbone agency for the R.I. Department of Health's Olneyville Health Equity Zone.
“Health equity” means everyone has the opportunity to lead a healthy life, no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they make. This initiative offers an innovative, community-led approach and brings partners together to achieve systemic changes at the local level.
“Good health is foundational to all we care about as a state. When we work together and invest in health equity, our families, communities and economy benefit,” said Beane.
