Protect Our Care - Action and Resource Center

For Organizations

All of us are concerned about the future of the health care system.  UHCAN Ohio wants to assure that in this challenging time, we Make Health Morally Fair. Moral Fairness means everyone has equal access to health and we attain health equity.

To help everyone manage the vast information flow, UHCAN Ohio will put together a list of the partner resources related to the health care challenges and update the list on a weekly basis.

If your organization has resources or anything else to share, please send them to us at info@uhcanohio.org.
