What is MACC?
The Multiethnic Advocates for Cultural Competence (MACC) is a statewide nonprofit membership agency aimed at the reduction of health disparities in Ohio’s health systems. Ohio faces a number of disparate health outcomes that are the result of a lack of knowledge and understanding about the diverse racial and ethnic populations being served. MACC is equipping providers and systems with the necessary tools and best practices to enhance their delivery of care.
