Event description
Confronting Medical Racism and Exploring Ethical Implications of the COVID-19 Pandemic to Develop Strategies for a Better Future

About this Event

The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the health inequities experienced by the Black community, and other communities of color. The arrival of two safe, and effective COVID-19 vaccines has ushered in the dawn of a new day. However, not everyone is fighting to be first in line. Why? The answer to this question lies within a quote from the late great Maya Angelou: "You can’t really know where you are going, until you know where you have been.” The systemic racism that has led to inequities in health, has also led to the mistrust experienced by minority communities. Many of these of the injustices are not discussed in professional settings, and as a result, has left the medical community with an unfortunate gap in solving some of these great problems. Understanding this history will help guide and inform policy makers and the medical community on the best way forward, as we look to bridge the divides that our history has created. These are unique times for us as healthcare leaders to learn, grow, and gain new perspectives on how to be a voice for, and best engage with the Black community. Join us for an engaging conversation on understanding historic to present day clinical and management insights that reflect the untold, but ever present reality, of marginalized communities, as well as steps the healthcare industry can take to improve upon it.

This event is brought to you by the DFW, Golden State and St Louis Chapters of the National Association of Health Service Executives (NAHSE) in partnership with the North Texas Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE).
