Creating a community of good health for all
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is committed to improving health and wellness in our Ohio communities. We partner with dozens of dedicated organizations to improve the health of our community, our state and beyond through innovations and transformation in research, education, patient care and community engagement.
We have built lasting partnerships and continue to engage in new ones to:
- Improve health care access in underserved areas and for marginalized populations
- Address the social determinants of health to improve patient and health outcomes
- Decrease health disparities that lead to vast differences in health outcomes, including life expectancy based on ZIP code, race, ethnicity and income

2022 health equity and anti-racism initiatives
Ohio State community partnerships aim to identify disparities and improve health outcomes for Black men and women
Researchers at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center are partnering to create a culture of health in the Black community with programs designed to improve risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Integrating health equity, anti-racism efforts into health care education and medical practice
Building a more equitable future for health care begins with today’s medical students at the Ohio State College of Medicine, where targeted work is addressing racism and inequity in medical school curriculum and practice.
Building an increasingly anti-racist health care system benefiting Ohio State patients, staff and the community
Racism is a social determinant of health, and this fact drives the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s anti-racism plan and efforts to change outcomes for our patients and communities.
