Moving the Needle on Health Equity: Two Experts Share Successful Programs and Lessons Learned

August 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Poverty, implicit bias, racism—these are just some of the preventable social factors that contribute to persistent, unjust inequities in health outcomes for children and families. This spring, NICHQ launched a series of webinars to support individuals who are pursuing equity within the health system. Our first webinar, Pursuing Health Equity: Start Where You Are, focused on what individuals can do to pursue change.

 

Now, we’re taking the next step and highlighting strategies children’s health programs and organizations can take to move the needle towards health equity. This second webinar in our Health Equity Series will share experiences from two health equity champions: Arthur R. James, MD, an obstetrician, gynecologist and pediatrician who has sought to improve care for underserved populations for the entirety of his medical career; and Denise Evans, MM, MA, a certified facilitator on cultural intelligence and unconscious bias.

 

Together, they will provide insights on:

– Successful programs that have addressed health equity

– Lessons learned about what led to those programs’ successes

– Strategies that programs and organizations can use to champion health equity in their work
