Monterey County’s rural hospital, Mee Memorial in King City, is one of six organizations in the country selected to learn strategies for eliminating racial and ethnic disparities in health care.

Its leadership team will take part in the one-year Disparities Leadership Program now in its 15th year. It’s the first program of its kind in the U.S., led by the Disparities Solutions Center based in Boston. The program is designed to equip leaders at hospitals, health insurance plans, and other healthcare organizations with strategies to overcome inequalities.
