Health equity is the goal of STAR Center, but it’s
not today’s reality.
Some people living with disabilities, those recovering from stroke or injury and those with chronic conditions may be able to arrange transportation and at least get through the front door of an exercise facility. But they can’t use training equipment, navigate a track, reach restrooms or shower. If they are lucky enough to find suitable equipment, oftentimes no one in the facility can assist them.
What health equity means
Everyone has the chance to lead the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible. No one is disadvantaged because of physical limitation, social position, or other circumstance.
