Sanofi hands out com­mu­ni­ty health eq­ui­ty grants in on­go­ing ef­fort to build trust with mar­gin­al­ized groups

Sanofi launched its “A Mil­lion Con­ver­sa­tions” ini­tia­tive last year with the goal to bridge the trust gap be­tween the health­care in­dus­try and mar­gin­al­ized com­mu­ni­ties. But the broad ef­fort is more than just talk, and in­cludes fund­ing for col­lege schol­ar­ships and com­mu­ni­ty or­ga­ni­za­tion work, such as the first of­fi­cial group of Health Eq­ui­ty Ac­cel­er­a­tor win­ners an­nounced re­cent­ly.

The co­hort of 10 non­prof­its cov­ers a range of Sanofi-tar­get­ed ther­a­py ar­eas with pro­grams across he­mo­phil­ia, flu, RSV, lung can­cer, mul­ti­ple myelo­ma, mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis and type 1 di­a­betes. Each or­ga­ni­za­tion will re­ceive $50,000 and year­long ac­cess to Sanofi’s ex­per­tise.
