In March 2021, the inaugural Accelerating Health Equity Conference was hosted virtually by AHA Community Health Improvement (ACHI) and the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity (IFDHE). Through this conference, the American Hospital Association (AHA) brought together two of its leading networks to advance their shared mission to close health equity gaps by building strategic hospital-community partnerships and developing and sustaining diversity and inclusion across the field.

2021 Accelerating Health Equity Virtual Conference Highlights

The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated deep health disparities in urban, suburban and rural communities across the U.S. While ACHI and IFDHE have a long track record fostering collaborative approaches to advance the health of individuals and communities, it is clear there's more work to do — and we are stronger when we all work together.

This three-day event expanded knowledge through innovative strategies, proven resources and personal experiences, and reimagined population and community health for the future.
