2017  Equity of Care Free Webinar Series

The American Hospital Association’s #123 for Equity Pledge to Eliminate Healthcare Disparities recognizes the nation’s demographic shift and the need to ensure that all patients receive high-quality care as well as to increase diversity in hospital leadership and governance.

Now AHA is offering two free webinars featuring AHA Equity of Care Award honorees discussing what their hospitals and health systems are doing to reduce healthcare disparities and promote diversity and inclusion within their organizations.

Webinar One: Monday, November 20, - 1:00-2:00 p.m. - “Aligning Diversity and Inclusion, Community Engagement, Business Operations and Population Health Efforts to Achieve Equity,” featuring Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, and Advocate Health Care, Downers Grove, Illinois.

Webinar Two: Wednesday, December 13, - 1:00-2:00 p.m. - “Aligning Community and Employee Engagement, and Population Health Efforts to Achieve Equity,” featuring Cone Health, Greensboro, North Carolina. Click here to register.

Also available is an archived webinar entitled “Waiting for Health Equity,” which is an exploration of two frameworks that provide new insights into how inequity operates, examine the role of health systems in addressing oppression, and discuss ways that individuals can act to dismantle structural inequities.
