Dalio Center for Health Justice

The Dalio Center for Health Justice aims to understand and address the root causes of health inequities with the goal of setting a new standard of health for the communities we serve.

Dr. Julia Iyasere

"The Dalio Center will be a central resource — the conscience of our organization. We are committed to improving the health and well-being of our patients and communities through research, dialogue and education, equity in our clinical operations, investment in our communities, and advocacy. Together, we have the ability to dismantle the systemic factors that lead to health inequity and to be an advocate for national change."
