The AHA's Health Research & Educational Trust and Institute for Diversity and Health Equity have launched the 2018 Population Health, Equity and Diversity Survey. Recently emailed to AHA-member CEOs for completion by May 4, the survey is designed to inform the field about hospitals' and health systems' ongoing efforts to address population health, health equity and diversity in the communities they serve. Aggregate findings from the survey will be shared in various forms, including whitepapers, presentations and educational forums. For more information, contact AHA survey support at surveysupport@aha.org or 800-530-9092.
