In a recent article, Sandro Galea, MD, DrPh, wrote, “There can be no health without social justice.” Recent events underscore the persistent, deeply entrenched inequities undermining the health of vulnerable populations and communities of color. This panel pulls together thought leaders from across the fields of community and population health to discuss the root causes of inequity and what is needed to truly transform health in Texas. The discussion will offer practical guidance for working internally and alongside community and government partners to advance equity, social justice, and systemic change.
