Achieving Health Equity: Tackling the Medical Community’s Greatest Care Challenge

June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

How are hospitals and health systems working to better ensure that they are providing equitable treatment to every segment of their communities? That question has taken on new resonance as the U.S. emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, which hit many minority and low-income populations harder than others. A number of hospitals and health systems are doubling down on community outreach and development efforts, taking proactive steps like hiring a more diverse workforce, expanding their roles as “anchor institutions” to tackle the social determinants of health (e.g., housing, food insecurity, better chronic illness management). Hear insights and learn about real-world solutions and community partnerships that are yielding measurable results in closing the equity gap in care delivery.

This webinar is part of the Community Health Leadership Forum, a virtual event series from U.S. News & World Report focused on improving community health across the country. Hear from leading voices from across sectors who are collaborating to address the social determinants of health, reduce inequities and make a lasting difference in the well-being of their populations.
