What We Do
Systemic racism has had a profound impact on the 3E’s—environment, education, and economics—and these three factors can significantly influence the health outcomes of Black communities. Uzima strives to measure and manipulate the 3E’s to promote health equity and ensure that Black communities have access to the resources they need to achieve optimal health.
