The National Health Equity Grand Rounds is a live virtual event series that highlights the root causes of present-day health inequities by tracing the historical and contemporary social, economic, political, geographic, and environmental forces that shape opportunities for health in the United States. The May 9th event features speakers who are disrupting and dismantling inequity within and beyond health care. Expert speakers will challenge our audience to participate in the reimagination of a health care system that centers community and healing over profiteering. Our speakers discuss how profit in health care incentivizes inequity by perpetuating and exacerbating segregated systems of care, which serves to maintain class inequality. They also highlight strategies for disrupting our existing systems to catalyze change within and beyond single institutions; and explore how the process of undoing structural incentives for inequity creates opportunities for collective liberation and healing.
