“At OHA, we’ve had our stumbles. We’ve learned tough lessons. But we’re intent on eliminating health inequity by 2030, and all the intolerable physical, emotional, social, and economic burdens it imposes on people, families, and communities. There’s no time to lose. There is no excuse to fail. And if we trust our communities to be our guides, nothing can stand in our way.”
