Improving access to affordable health care is an important part of community efforts to prevent and manage chronic diseases, eliminate health disparities, and ultimately increase quality and years of healthy life for people in Carroll County. The Partnership encourages initiatives that remove barriers to health care – especially for under-served and uninsured residents. Issues of access to health care are currently addressed by the Access to Health Care Leadership Team and Local Health Improvement Coalition.
