Working Together to Advance Health Equity

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

 

Strategies for addressing disparities in health care are often myopic, or worse, dismissed as a distraction from rigorous health assessment. As health professionals, advocates, policymakers, and patients, we are all situated to directly effect change at a structural level for populations with complex health and social needs. This talk will address the individual and broader systemic issues that impact the social determinants of health and establish that expert care and caring about cultural competency are not mutually exclusive concepts.
