Health Equity Hero

Health Equity

We want everyone to meet their whole health potential and understand that there are specific barriers that impact immigrants. That is why we are actively working on systematic change while trying to better the lives of individuals and families.

Luminus seeks to improve health equity by targeting seven areas that prevent equitable access to health resources for immigrants:

  1. System complexity
  2. Language and culture barriers
  3. Lack of access to networks
  4. Affordability
  5. Transportation
  6. Stigma
  7. Employment

We Overcome These Barriers Through

    • Outreach to the community
    • Hosting multilingual webinars   
    • Free COVID-19 testing events
    • Drive-through flu shot events  
    • Covid-19 Vaccinations

Want to help immigrants shine?

Our volunteers, or “luminators,” play a critical role in helping us light the path for New Americans. As trusted members of the community — and often immigrants themselves — they ensure New Americans receive necessary support and services.
