The Eighth Health Disparities Conference features lectures by individuals who are making significant contributions to improving healthcare access and to empowering vulnerable populations and marginalized communities.
This conference will allow participants to review and learn strategies focused on achieving health equity through access to care, prevention and treatment of major chronic diseases. Special session presentations will address interprofessional models of clinical, scientific, academic, and public health interventions that improve outcomes and eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity through treatment, advocacy, and policy development.
At the end of the conference, participants should be able to:
- Examine interprofessional and interdisciplinary co-partnerships between patients and communities to eliminate health disparities and create health equity;
- Discuss interprofessional models that improve health equity and eliminate health disparities;
- Examine interprofessional partnerships that result from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and other policy implications; and
- Review the impact of patient and community partnerships designed to reduce racial and ethnic health and health care disparities.
