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 August 8th event will feature speakers who will challenge our audience to address academic elitism in health education, reimagining an educational system that supports all students and trainees as they learn to care for a diverse patient population. Within the context of the historical and contemporary forces that have shaped the current medical workforce landscape in the U.S., our speakers will elevate strategies for addressing the long-standing underrepresentation of historically excluded populations in clinical programs.
