Medicaid expansion will no longer launch Oct. 1 as the North Carolina General Assembly failed to take needed action to meet that date. A new launch date will be announced following the needed legislative action, but it will not be Oct. 1.

Health Equity Council

People, Place, and Partnership for Better Health Outcomes for Everyone

Multiracial group

Trillium’s Health Equity Council provides input related to health awareness, literacy, equity, and identification of health disparities.

The Health Equity Council is made up of people from the following backgrounds:

  • People of color (Black, Native American, Asian American, Latinx, etc.)
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ+)
  • People who primarily speak Spanish
  • Residents of rural areas
  • People who have had issues accessing transportation, stable housing, or fresh food options

Trillium has contributed to improving health equity in our region for more than ten years. Learn more below.

 Health Equity Report

Trillium’s model for the Health Equity Council will focus on the following principles:  


Our members are the experts in their health care needs. Your perspective will drive the development of:

  • Engagement strategies with historically marginalized populations to meet annual goals 
  • Establishing recommended health care and access to care priorities
  • Potential improvements to our messaging and member outreach efforts through health awareness and literacy 


Geography can affect health outcomes; rural areas and coastal locations may not have as many health care providers. Members living in these areas will be able to:  

  • Make recommendations of initiatives that address health-related disparities in specific areas
  • Suggest tailored interventions to reduce health disparities with specific measurable outcomes


Our inclusive approach means that everyone in our community should have a voice in their health care such as:

  • Suggesting interventions to increase well being 
  • Addressing unmet health-related needs (such as transportation or food) impacting members who may be eligible for Healthy Opportunities funding in specific counties
  • Fostering acceptance and community involvement through relationships and partnerships
