The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF), the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations
(AAPCHO) and members of the Summit Host Committee are convening the 2011 Health Equity Summit to bring together diverse
communities with our nation’s experts in health care, civil rights, and government to discuss policy reforms and initiatives that
move the country toward racial equity in health and health care. The well-being and health of one community affects us all, as
our social and economic policies are intertwined and are only effective when everyone benefits from those policies. Healthy
communities make for better housing, steady employment, stronger education and innovative transportation. The Summit will
address all of these policies and the role that health care plays.
