UnitedHealthcare® Community Plan of Michigan is partnering with SciPol-Detroit to launch a Health Equity Challenge. Our goal is to uncover new and innovative approaches that support health equity — reducing disparities while improve physical and behavioral health outcomes. From reducing childhood lead exposures to increasing access to healthy foods — if you have an idea that aims to address disparities based on race, language, culture, gender and/or sexual orientation, we want to hear from you.
Interventions must be in Michigan.
Interventions must focus on reducing racial and ethnic disparities. Focus on new/innovative approaches to support health equity and reduce differences in physical and mental health based upon race, language, culture, gender and/or sexual orientation.
Utilize public data (CDC, Community Health Assessments, Social vulnerability Index, etc.) to help inform and support the intervention. Please see the list of resources that will be provided with the application.
Give all kids a healthy start:
Serve the whole person:
Propose how the idea would be sustainable long term (potential policy change, partners in the community, pay for success model, continuation within the Wayne State SciPol Group, etc.).
Articulate how the proposal will utilize the $50,000 with a Community Based Organization.
If you're an individual looking for a health plan we can help. Find the plan you're looking for today.
