Recently emailed to AHA-member CEOs for completion by May 11, 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.
