Righting the Wrongs: Tackling Health Inequities

Featured Speakers for Righting the Wrongs: Tackling Health Inequities Conference, January 19-20, 2022

This two-day health equity summit, convened by the Hastings Center and the AAMC Center for Health Justice on January 19-20, 2022, will feature:

  • Isabel Wilkerson, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and author of the best-selling book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents.
  • David Williams, an internationally recognized scientist whose TED Talk entitled, "How Racism Makes Us Sick" has been viewed over 1 million times. 
  • Daniel Dawes, a leader in the movement to advance health equity and a key figure in shaping the Mental Health Parity Act and the Affordable Care Act.

Day one will focus on decisions that have led to major inequities in health today.  It will be designed for the general public, and health professionals, researchers, and policymakers. Day two will offer examples of promising strategies that health care leaders and practicing clinicians can employ to address inequities through policy, clinical care, medical education, research, and community collaborations. Free registration is available now.
