Event Details

 An event to advance the Brigham’s commitment to health equity, quality and justice in patient care, research, education, and our community.

All employees, faculty, trainees and students at the Brigham are invited to join national and global leaders to discuss our shared commitment to pursuing equity. The day will feature interactive lunch roundtables, a keynote address by Dr. Mary Bassett (Director of the FXB Center at HSPH and former Commissioner of Health for New York City), and a dynamic panel probing how we can live our values and promote equity – as individuals, and as an organization. The Brigham recognizes that health inequities are a threat to patient safety, and is committed to embracing its role in designing and prioritizing systems of care that are equitable and just.  The day will culminate with a reception and poster session highlighting some of the remarkable health equity work underway across the Brigham, providing an opportunity to connect with others working in this space. This event is free, and all members of the Brigham community are welcome to attend. 

 

Call for scientific and informational health equity posters: If you would like to submit a poster to be displayed at the poster session, please fill out the brief form here. Submission deadline is April 24.
