Video: Race and Equity in Healthcare
Wednesday, January 11, 2017
Race and ethnicity continue to influence a patient's chances of receiving many specific health care interventions, education and treatments.
Join us as we hear from social entrepreneurs who are finding new ways to bring healthcare to those who have been neglected and left behind. Hosted by WNYC's Jami Floyd.
During this event, we’ll hear from the speakers about why they couldn’t ignore this problem, and how they got the inspiration for their big, bold solution. Each solution and each social entrepreneur comes at the problem from a different angle. Hear them in conversation about how to have the biggest impact, and how you can challenge yourself to develop your own ideas and commitments to action.
