DEI Efforts of the 140+ Member Organizations of the OAAA

In each newsletter, we will feature an OAAA member organization’s efforts in the area of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).

ACE JointHealthArthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) is Canada’s largest patient led arthritis group and is committed to understanding and raising awareness about inequities in arthritis care related to service delivery, treating, and managing arthritis, and self-advocacy. As part of that commitment, ACE recently conducted a National Survey to identify inequities relating to access to health care services between white and Black, Indigenous, and person of color respondents.
