This manuscript will describe the evolution of a unique community model in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, designed to provide educational empowerment to the healthcare consumer around the area of health disparities. The model has also effectively raised the level of awareness of the social responsibility of the healthcare delivery system to hold itself accountable in the provision of equity in healthcare. This community model brings together all stakeholders in the healthcare delivery and consumer equation, around a common goal of communal stewardship, emphasizing community and corporate obligation and responsibility.
