Legislative Webinar: Disrupting Health Disparities

December 7, 2021

Please join Senators Monique Limón, Sydney Kamlager and Assemblymember Jim Cooper, legislative leaders and life science industry experts for a legislative webinar: Disrupting Health Disparities from 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.

There are deep-seated healthcare disparities throughout the state. For communities of color this is amplified by social and economic factors that contribute to poor health outcomes. COVID-19 has shed an even brighter light on the need for diversity in clinical trials and research, making this conversation even more timely and necessary. Leading experts will discuss the most innovative collaborative programs being carried out by California’s life science industry in partnership with healthcare advocates to disrupt long-standing inequities in healthcare.

Presented by the California Biotechnology Foundation, the event will focus on:

  • Increasing diversity in clinical trials and research and development.
  • Innovative communication strategies for clinical trial outreach and patients’ rights during clinical trials.
  • Ensuring access for patients in California; addressing barriers to specialists and other healthcare services.
  • Sharing ideas on effective engagement and partnership with underserved communities to improve health outcomes.
