San Diego, CA, AHA Leadership Summit

Wednesday, July 25, 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. PT


The #123forEquity Training Symposiums were developed to help #123forEquity pledgers and endorsers successfully realize progress in four key areas that will provide the greatest opportunities for hospitals and health systems to improve the equity of health care delivered by:

  1. Increasing the collection and use of race, ethnicity, language preference data and other social-economic data;
  2. Increasing cultural competency training; 
  3. Increasing diversity in leadership and governance; and
  4. Improve and strengthen community partnerships.

Hosted by state hospital associations, the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity (Institute) and the Disparities Solutions Center(DSC) are jointly conducting regional training sessions over the next two years to provide strategies that help hospitals and health systems to effectively achieve the goals of the #123forEquity pledge. The day-long curriculum will focus on execution strategies for each component of the pledge. Health care leaders will be able to implement these solid strategies at their hospitals and health systems to improve health care quality, increase diversity and inclusion, and achieve health equity for all.
