Conversations in Healthcare Workforce Disparities

A diverse healthcare workforce ensures that you are providing care that is racially and ethnically concordant. Know what? It also improves outcomes.

Take Post-Survey

If you’ve already completed the activity.

  • Overview

    Diversifying our physician workforce so that it is more racially, ethnically, and geographically balanced can ultimately have a positive impact on community health. Join us as two experts discuss how pipeline programs reaching children as early as elementary school can help ensure workplace diversity. Also find out how clinicians can be advocates for their patients by helping to disentangle them from structural inequities and working towards policy changes. There’s a lot than can be done to provide more balanced care, but we need to look beyond simple fixes to the root causes of the issues. So find your bandwidth – that’s what you can do today – and discover why it’s so important to move upstream to solve the problems manifesting downstream.
