Every day, our experiences are shaped by our race, gender and even our age. But how does our identity shape the health care we receive? Join us for a riveting conversation with some of the most insightful voices today.
12:00pm - 4:00pm
This Policy Consortium will explore the ways in which how we identify ourselves– and how others identify us– influence our health care experiences, both positively and negatively. We will discuss the impact of racial, gender and cultural identities on access to health care, treatment and health equity.
Check out Season 6 of our podcast, Advocates in Action, in which we explore these themes with advocates, patients and providers.
