Quest for Health Equity

Bridging the Health Equity Gap in Underserved Communities

Our Story

We created Quest for Health Equity (Q4HE) because we believe that good health should be in reach for everyone — regardless of their zip code, income, or skin color.

But for too many Americans, especially members of historically marginalized communities, this is far from reality.

Through Q4HE and The Quest Way, we’re on a quest to help remove systemic barriers and improve access to the critical resources we all need, since a healthier world means health for all.

Building a better future

We’re focused on addressing inequities in under-resourced communities in two fundamental ways:

  1. Collaborating on community-driven priorities

    We’re collaborating side-by-side with local stakeholders to support community-led initiatives that address social determinants of health.

  2. Advancing equity in diagnostics and screening

    We’re improving access to testing and information, working to address bias in the diagnostic process, and making the research behind diagnostics more equitable.

Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhumane.

Think nationally, act locally

We have a bold purpose at Quest Diagnostics through The Quest Way, recognizing that creating a healthier world happens in one community—and one life—at a time. We’re driving initiatives in communities across the US with new areas of impact added on an ongoing basis.
