HEALTH IMPROVEMENT PARTNERSHIP OF SANTA CRUZ COUNTY
2022 ANNUAL REPORT
A WORD FROM HIP
Dear HIP Partners and Community,
As we unveil this 2022 Annual Report, we see growing support both conceptually and legally for individuals' right to choose the healthcare that is best for them, following grave threats to this right. Simultaneously, 我们看到越来越多的公务员反映了我们社区的丰富多样性. These leaders marshal their race/ethnicity, gender and/or gender identity, ability status, other significant identity markers, 以及生活经验来推动制度变革，以纠正长期存在的不平等. I feel this same dynamic from HIP’s team.
回顾2022年，反映了HIP继续努力召开会议, illuminate, advocate, 促进合作，推动在健康和福祉方面取得公平成果. HIP的2022年目标要求我们将股权作为一颗价值和指引之星.
经过一年的过渡，我们重申并再次澳门永利皇宫博彩将卫生公平作为澳门永利皇宫博彩官网北极星. 作为一个组织，我们将在今年的种族认同转型工作的基础上. Victoria Ngo, UC Davis Research Fellow, and Dr. Jann Murray-Garcia, 加州大学戴维斯分校健康公平办公室的社会正义和沉浸式学习主任, Diversity, and Inclusion. Now, with a shared understanding of the historical, structural, systemic, and systematic dimensions of racism, Dr. Jann Murray-Garcia’s provocative question will propel us and center our work in 2023: "How is it that we can't find a racist in the room and yet we continue to produce racialized outcomes? We are responsible for both the intent and the outcome.”
Closing 2022, proud of the shared accomplishments described here, 我们怀着强烈的希望和决心迎接新年. HIP will craft intentionally designed spaces for collaboration to close racialized gaps in health status and outcomes. 在这些空间中，我们将肯定社区的力量，承认社区的创伤和历史. We will invite truthful sharing of personal stories so that we can design systems that truly heal and resolve glaring gaps in health in order to co-create a thriving, loving, connected community. 对HIP来说，这就是我们如何看待当前加强和嵌入卫生公平的道路.
We know we can achieve this. We invite you to join us.
In love and partnership,

Interim Executive Director
