Advancing Health Equity: The Pathway to Reduce Health Disparities and Improve Patient Care

  • 2043 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

RAYBURN HOUSE OFFICE BUILDING
45 Independence Ave. SW, Room 2043
Washington, DC 20515

Racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and those who have low-incomes are statistically more likely to receive lower quality of care. As U.S. minority populations grow, their leading causes of death such as cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and mental illness have also seen a steady growth. Addressing the health and health care disparities that are associated with these leading causes of death is imperative for the promotion of health equity. Join us and our panel of experts as we discuss how the advancement of health equity can reduce health disparities and improve patient care among people of color.

Panelists:

  • Mr. Andrew Anderson, Phyllis Torda Healthcare Quality Fellow, National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA)

  • Dr. Anneta Arno, Director, Office of Health Equity, DC Health

  • Dr. Sinsi Hernandez-Cancio, Director, Center on Health Equity Action, Families USA

  • Dr. Elena Rios, President & CEO, National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA)
