MERC believes in working with community organizations and public agencies to improve the health of our racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse communities.  The following organizations have attended one of our Symposiums, have been involved in one of our MERC projects, and/or are known for their work to improve the health of communities of color. We hope that these links will be a useful resource for those interested in the issues of multicultural health
