Inequity in Healthcare: Are We Part of the Problem or Part of the Solution?

This presentation is part 2 of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) summer series. This online class is open to all health care providers, including healthcare students, and will be presented by Anthony L-T Chen, MD, MPH, the Director of Health at Tacoma/Pierce County Health Department and Chief Health Strategist for Pierce County. Dr. Chen will describe the inequities in healthcare he has identified in the Tacoma, Pierce Co region, and how these inequities became entrenched in our healthcare systems. Learn how healthcare providers have been a part of continuing those disparities and how many healthcare providers are now becoming part of the solution by increasing awareness of those inequities and promoting policy and practice changes to abolish them. Discuss best practices and strategies that could have a positive impact on the healthcare for our diverse community.
