Health Disparities and Social Injustice Are Real.
Let's All Be Part of the Change.

Health disparities in the United States are real, and we are dedicated to being part of the change. Individuals across the country are asking for respect, dignity and equality. Here, we believe that change happens when we all come together and listen and truly hear what the other person is saying. 

Bristol Health shares a vision of a healthy, vibrant community, where all individuals, regardless of color, ethnicity, gender and economic standing have access to quality health care.
