Reaching the Hard to Reach: Equitable Healthcare Access, and the Role of Community Leadership [video]

This cross-sector conversation will explore how and why certain communities are harder to engage around healthcare delivery, and share best practices that both faith and community leaders and private sector leaders are using to gain trust and unlock healthcare delivery in our communities. Taking a particular look through the lens of Covid-19, especially around testing, treatment, clinical trials, and vaccine access and delivery, it will ask the question: what does this mean for engaging communities around other health risk factors, and for health equity outcomes overall?

Breaking the Mold in Women's Health [video]

For too long, our medical establishment and practices have failed to make the distinction in treating males and females in a number of areas, including clinical trials, treatment prescriptions, physician education, and more. This conversation will explore the uniqueness of women’s health, and how we should be treating the patient based on key differences between the sexes, the implications for the healthcare community, and how the medical field can and should implement changes moving forward.
