Caring for Patients with Cardiovascular Disease Against the Backdrop of COVID-19 and Systemic Racism
Recognizing the impact of systemic and institutional racism, how might we provide equitable care for patients with chronic conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes?

How might we move toward a care delivery model that is “trauma-informed,” acknowledging racism both as trauma and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease?

—Hear from health care leaders from Kaiser Permanente and California safety net organizations on how their work to improve health equity and eliminate disparities has evolved in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many others.
