Health Equity

In October 2017, RMHF's 18 Equity + Health Fellows charged the Foundation to utilize its full range of tools to be a catalyst and champion for greater health and racial equity in the Richmond region and articulated an aggressive outcomes-focused agenda for change.

In June 2018, RMHF names a second class of Fellows with a new focus on grassroots neighborhood and community-based leaders.
