Pursuing Health Equity

Realizing the role that each of us has to foster a vision of a society where everyone has an equal opportunity to live the healthiest life possible. Looking at implicit bias and its impact on patient healthcare, mitigate vilification of some, the feelings of guilt in others, and to mitigate the presentation of this work as a zero-sum game pitting groups against one another.

You will explore:

  • Successful programs that have addressed health equity
  • Skills to reduce bias and increase recruitment and retention of diverse staff
  • Lessons learned about what led to those programs’ successes
  • Strategies that programs and organizations can use to champion health equity in their work
