One of the most glaring and seemingly intractable challenges facing
health care organizations and professionals today is the absence of
health equity in their patient population. Disparities in health care
between groups defined socially, economically, demographically or
geographically are, in the World Health Organization’s (WHO) definition
of health equity, “unfair and avoidable or remediable.” This program
will teach you how to confront and remediate unfair practices and
advance health equity in your community or practice.

Traditional medical education lacks training on how the health care
system is influenced by racism and how outdated policies perpetuate
disparities. To help you fill this knowledge gap and refine your
leadership skills through a health equity lens, this program delves into
the current state of the health care system and the latest research on
the social determinants of health. In particular, you will:

  • Examine how specific policies adversely affect vulnerable
    populations and explore inequities from a policy and business
    perspective
  • Analyze factors impacting patients and health care providers, such
    as identity/identification, “minority tax,” imposter syndromes, implicit
    bias, work-life integration, and secondary stress refracted through
    systems
  • Discover how to lead conversations with colleagues and partners to
    improve your organization’s policies and procedures and, ultimately, the
    health of your community at large

By participating in this program, you will gain the skills to be a
transformational leader who not only understands population health, but
also pioneers innovation in policies, practices, and programs that
promote health equity.
