A Courageous Conversation About Race, Ethnicity, Culture and Health in America: It’s Time for Transformative Action to Eliminate Healthcare Disparities!
The COVID-19 pandemic glaringly illuminated racial and ethnic pervasive, persistent and longstanding health and healthcare disparities. Health and healthcare disparities are compounded by historic mistrust of the U.S. healthcare system and healthcare providers by communities of color. This webinar will explore the reasons for health and healthcare disparities, how to increase diversity in clinical trials, best practices in outreach and engagement, how to respond to vaccine hesitancy and how to partner with patient advocacy groups of color. Competitive advantage will accrue to healthcare organizations who are comfortable with the issues of multiculturalism and who take strategic, sustainable, and measurable action to reach the underserved in access and quality. It’s time to have a bold and courageous conversation about race and health in America in striving for health equity.
