Health Equity

We envision all residents of Calvert County having the ability to maximize their health through access to quality healthcare regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status, therefore eliminating disparities in health outcomes.

The Health Equity team at Calvert County Health Department is helping to serve our community and decrease disparities by linking those in need to resources.

Highway to Health (H2H) is a mobile outreach van that is case management driven. The mobile outreach van travels throughout the county to provide screenings and linkage to services such as behavioral, medical, and social. This free program was set up by the Health Department to help clients get assistance with needs that they may have had trouble navigating in the past. Clients will be able to connect to health department services without traveling to the health department. The coordinators also are able to link clients to other needed services outside of the health department.

Look out for our Highway to Health mobile outreach van in a neighborhood near you.
