Understanding Disparities in Healthcare

Did you know that communities of color are less likely to seek preventative treatments than other communities? What are the contributing factors to these disparities, and how can healthcare workers provide equitable access?

Join us for this new and timely discussion and broaden your understanding of some of the race-ethnic disparities and inequities that exist within healthcare and their prevalence, and impact within at-risk populations.

In this exclusive talk for Jefferson alumni and former residents and fellows, Neva White, DNP ’11, CRNP, CDE, executive director of the Frazier Family Coalition for Stroke Education and Prevention Center for Urban Health, shares information on global trends, the impact on communities of color, and efforts being made in education, advocacy, and policy. She will provide real-world considerations for frontline healthcare workers as they serve their communities.

A Q&A follows the talk.
