Abstract:
According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, “Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible.” While health equity has been a goal of many organizations for decades, events over the last 15+ months have shined a light on systemic inequities in health care. In this thought-provoking discussion, our panel will:

  • Define health equity and social determinants of health, including how they intersect
  • Highlight several of the largest areas of inequity in the American health care system
  • Discuss challenges in achieving health equity and strategies to combat those challenges
  • Share advice on how payers, providers and employers can work together towards more equitable care.
