Achieving Health Equity Through Collective and Sustained Actions

Join Manatt Health for the Second in our “Ten Health Care Imperatives for the Decade Ahead” Seriesa Cross-Sector Panel Discussion With Health Care Leaders Focused on Integrating and Sustaining Health Equity as a Foundational Imperative.

For far too long, gaps in health access and outcomes for people of color have persisted and worsened. The causes of these disparities are deeply rooted in and inextricably linked to systemic racism in our society. The confluence of the public health emergency, economic crisis and racial justice reckoning has put in sharp focus that health equity is a foundational imperative for all health care organizations. Health care leaders are being called to expand their view of health to include social, economic and environmental factors and to commit to the sustained learning, intentional action and ongoing investment necessary to build trust and advance health equity.

In a new webinar, Manatt Health leads a panel discussion with leaders across different health care sectors focused on the journey toward integrating and sustaining a commitment to health equity. The dynamic session:

  • Level sets on core concepts and terminology in health equity.
  • Discusses challenges and opportunities for aligning health equity with other strategic priorities within health care organizations.
  • Shares lessons learned during COVID-19 and the concrete strategies taken by health care organizations to advance health equity.
  • Highlights opportunities for collaborations between organizations and different health care sectors to maintain momentum and focus on health equity.

P.S. Our “Ten Health Care Imperatives for the Decade Ahead” webinar series is based on our recent white paper addressing the ten imperatives we believe are critical for improving the health care system and advancing health equity.
