We are steadfast in our belief that every person deserves access to quality healthcare, unencumbered by financial barriers or discriminatory practices. Health is a fundamental human right, not a privilege reserved for the fortunate few.

Our movement spans across the state, with a vast network of passionate supporters rallying behind our cause. From the bustling streets of Detroit to the resilient communities of Flint, from the historic neighborhoods of Saginaw to the vibrant cities of Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, and even reaching the corners of the Upper Peninsula, we stand united in our pursuit of equitable healthcare for all.

With thousands of dedicated individuals at our organizing hubs, we work tirelessly to amplify the voices of those who have been marginalized and underserved by the current healthcare system. Together, we advocate for comprehensive reforms that prioritize the well-being of every Michigander, regardless of income, employment status, or pre-existing conditions.

Our healthcare campaigns will work towards:


Care Over Cost is a campaign focused on winning real relief right now and prove that organizing works. We are focusing on base-building and leadership development through health care denial cases and public campaigning. We want to toxify the private insurance industry by decreasing their power and building stars and going into the election year we would like to break the relationship between elected officials and the private insurance industry.

Launched in June 2020 in collaboration with the Genesee County Health Department, the Michigan United Public Health Navigator program is committed to addressing the challenges posed by COVID-19 and social determinants of health, with a specific emphasis on vulnerable populations. This comprehensive data report provides an overview of the program's key features and its impact on the community.

Trusted Messengers: The program strategically deploys health navigators as trusted messengers to cultivate connections within diverse communities. These individuals, equipped with cultural competence and linguistic skills, serve as vital links between healthcare providers and community members. By establishing trust, effective communication is facilitated, enabling the relay of crucial health information and addressing concerns within minority groups, immigrants, and non-English speaking communities.

Educational Outreach: Health navigators engage in extensive educational outreach efforts, going beyond mere information distribution. Their active role ensures that information is not only accessible but also culturally sensitive and relevant to the specific needs of target populations. This includes providing accurate information on preventive measures, testing procedures, and other health guidelines related to COVID-19.

Support and Advocacy: Beyond education, health navigators provide invaluable support and advocacy services. They play a pivotal role in assisting individuals facing challenges related to COVID-19 and broader social determinants of health. This involved helping community members access healthcare services, navigate public health resources, and address various social and economic barriers impacting overall well-being.

Addressing Disparities: The program explicitly focuses on addressing disparities in health outcomes, demonstrating commendable efforts towards promoting equity. Health navigators recognize and target the specific challenges faced by certain populations, such as minorities, immigrants, and non-English speakers, with the aim of reducing inequalities in health access and outcomes. This approach aligns with the broader public health goal of achieving health equity.

Vaccination Assistance: In February 2021, the program extended its services to assist with COVID-19 vaccination scheduling, reflecting a proactive response to the evolving needs of the community. Health navigators directly aid individuals in scheduling vaccinations, contributing to ensuring that vulnerable populations have equitable access to vaccination services. This is crucial not only for individual protection but also for controlling the spread of the virus within the community.

Nurse Immunization Program: In August 2021, the Nurse Immunization program was launched, involving 10-13 RNs trained in COVID-19 vaccine administration and flu education. The program conducted over 1000 pop-up events and 200 home visits across Genesee County. With 25 community partners, including local pharmacies, and a virtual site visit by the CDC in May 2023, the program has demonstrated strong outreach efforts. Highlights: Over 2000 vaccines have been administered, 200 home visits, 30,000 community contacts, 100 webinars & podcasts, 30k social media views, and 3000 blood pressures taken.

Conclusion: The Michigan United Public Health Navigator program represents a comprehensive and community-centered initiative addressing the multifaceted challenges posed by COVID-19 and social determinants of health. Through the deployment of trusted messengers, educational outreach, support, and targeted efforts to address disparities, the program aims to create a more equitable and resilient healthcare environment within the communities it serves. This data report underscores the program's impact and effectiveness in promoting health equity and community well-being.
