Incorporating Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Into Your Organization from the Inside Out

Recorded On: 05/18/2022

The Public Health Emergency has underscored the huge disparity gaps that exist in our medically compromised patients who live in black and brown communities. In addition, CMS is now taking a deep dive into evaluating the impact of social determinants of health that could serve as barriers to patients receiving care during the serious illness care continuum. Join us for this interactive session as we take a deep dive into the current landscape and discuss practical strategies to increase and examine best practices strategies to enhance our EDI culture internally. In addition we will have an interactive discussion on what we can do to foster relationships in communities of color that will lead to increased trust and access to care.
