This workshop brings together healthcare leaders, medical school academics and leaders, providers, patients, pharma, and other stakeholder groups for an innovative and collaborative discussion on how to best equip our future healthcare leaders with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that allow them to adequately treat all patients and communicate with their families. Medical school and other healthcare training curriculums must be designed to appropriately train cultural competence. By proactively beginning to think about culturally competent healthcare leaders of tomorrow, we can begin to take steps towards addressing the broader healthcare disparities and health inequities that afflict the U.S. healthcare system.
The 8th annual Diversity, Inclusion, & Health Equity Symposium is a leading annual, collaborative event focusing on health equity and health disparities in the U.S. The symposium brings together leading healthcare professionals, executives, physicians, patient groups, patients, researchers, academics, clinical trial professionals, and diversity and inclusion advocates to discuss health equity in the life sciences and the health sectors. The symposium focuses on the latest trends, challenges, opportunities in both the marketplace and workplace, with a specific focus on how to best serve an increasingly diverse patient base. We also aim to address the broader health disparity challenges in the U.S., and the symposium equips attendees with the latest insights and ideas. Attendees will learn practical solutions, share perspectives, and meet new industry and marketplace colleagues.
