Our Commitment to Helping the Underserved

At UC Davis Health, we have a strong commitment to helping the people who need us most and who can least afford it. We’re working to serve cultures and communities that have been marginalized by the health care system.

A core part of our everyday mission is to increase the health of the community overall. We have many programs that work to increase the health care services available for all patients – whether they are uninsured or underinsured.
