Accelerating Health Equity Conference
May 16-18, 2023
Accelerating Health Equity
A time to connect and collaborate to advance community health, well-being, and equity.
Long-standing health care disparities and inequities still persist. Systemic drivers such as structural racism and economic disadvantages have resulted in disproportionate health outcomes across different patient populations.
Now is the time to evaluate how far we have come in closing existing gaps, assess where health care is on the equity journey and take what we have learned to strengthen our organizations and communities through collaborative and innovative work: investing in our neighborhoods and one another. Together we can continue to develop better and more equitable solutions to address barriers that prevent access to high-quality care and improve health outcomes.

The AHA Community Health Improvement network, an affiliate of the American Hospital Association, is the premier national association for community health, community benefit and population health professionals. We provide educational resources and tools, professional development and networking opportunities to help health leaders expand their knowledge and enhance their performance in achieving community health goals.
The Institute for Diversity and Health Equity, part of the American Hospital Association (AHA), works closely with health services organizations to advance health equity for all and to expand leadership opportunities for ethnic minorities in health management. We have long believed that promoting diversity within health care leadership and tackling health disparities is critical to ensuring the highest quality of care for everyone.
The Health Equity Roadmap is a framework to help hospitals and health care systems chart their own paths toward transformation — thus becoming more equitable and inclusive organizations.
A national initiative to drive improvement in health care outcomes, health equity, diversity and inclusion.
