Advancing Equity & Social Justice in Health Care: A Fireside Chat with Dr. Uché Blackstock
December 14th, 2022
Presented by Seema Kumar, CEO, Cure
Even as science and technology bring extraordinary breakthroughs to advance healthcare, the solutions remain accessible only to a privileged few and are not accessible to all. COVID laid bare systemic racism and social inequities and shed light on the importance of closing the gaps. This will require a commitment from the science and healthcare ecosystem to redouble efforts and mobilize for equity and social justice.
Cure, in partnership with the Aspen Institute Science & Society Program, will host a fireside chat with Dr. Uché Blackstock, founder and CEO of Advancing Health Equity, focused on equipping healthcare professionals with the tools and strategies to provide racially equitable care. Join us as we talk with Dr. Blackstock about how those in STEM careers and in medicine can work together to help solve inequities impacting society.
We will also be joined by Dr. Julius Johnson, to speak on the importance of community health and laying the groundwork for community-led efforts to address health disparities
