Health equity can be achieved when everyone has equitable access to opportunity, resources, and power. We are privileged to work in San Mateo County that is a leader in health outcomes in the state. But we also know that Get Healthy SMC has much work to do to ensure every resident can live a healthier life. Not every sector of our population enjoys optimal health outcomes in our county. In our county, the infant mortality rate for Blacks is 14.5 per 1,000 live births which is over 6 times higher compared to all race/ethnicities based on data from 2013 to 2015.
