Relive the Experience of 2022

It’s a fact.

Long-standing health care disparities and inequities have been illuminated and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Systemic inequities, such as structural racism and economic disadvantages within diverse communities, are preventing individuals – and their communities - from achieving optimal health, leading to avoidable differences in health outcomes.

At the same time, the pandemic has elevated the need for hospitals and community-based organizations to connect, collaborate and take action to directly affect the determinants of health and improve health equity in communities across the country.

Heather-McGhee

Opening Keynote!

AHA is thrilled to announce that bestselling author and NBC News contributor Heather McGhee will give the opening keynote address at the 2022 Accelerating Health Equity Conference.

In her book, "The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together," McGhee pulls back the curtain on how racism divides and devastates us, while offering a path forward for creating a just and equitable future for all.

Join this renowned economist and commentator for an informed and deeply compassionate discussion on how to make health equity mission-critical, how to engage your organizations and your communities, and how to do it all with joy. It’s an actionable road map every health care and community well-being organization needs to navigate these uncertain and troubling times and, as McGhee notes, one we need to do together.

Thank you to The MetroHealth System for sponsoring this session.
