Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.
Midwestern University has launched the Advancing Health Equity Webinar Series offering timely discussions and featuring real-world situations, best practices, and steps healthcare providers can use to recognize and address bias and healthcare disparities to provide equitable, compassionate care that considers the unique backgrounds and lived experiences of each patient. These one-hour webinars are constructed to assess and discuss an advanced approach to understanding social determinants of health, and how to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the healthcare setting.
