Creating Accountability Through Data: From Racism and Neglect to Transparency and Repair

During the October 10th event, expert speakers invited participants to reevaluate how we think about data on race and ethnicity. We dove deep into the ways race data impacts our institutions and health care systems, shapes priorities and determines how resources get to the communities they serve.

Speakers discussed the failures and harms in our approaches to collecting, analyzing, reporting, and leveraging race, ethnicity, and other key demographic data in public health and health care. This virtual conversation serves as a foundation for understanding the critical next steps needed to hold health systems, providers, researchers, and government accountable to historically marginalized and institutionally underserved communities.

Breaking Down the Ivory Tower: Building the Health Care Workforce America Needs


The August 8th event featured speakers who challenged our audience to address academic elitism in health education and reimagined 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 elevated strategies for addressing the long-standing underrepresentation of historically excluded populations in clinical programs.

Follow the Money! Understanding the Structural Incentives for Inequity in Health Care and Beyond

The May 9th event featured speakers who are dismantling inequity within and beyond health care. Expert speakers challenged our audience to participate in the reimagination of a health care system that centers community and healing over profiteering. Our speakers discussed how profit in health care incentivizes inequity by perpetuating and exacerbating segregated systems of care, which serves to maintain class inequality. They also highlighted strategies for disrupting our existing systems to catalyze change within and beyond single institutions; and explored how the process of undoing structural incentives for inequity creates opportunities for collective liberation and healing.

History of Racism in U.S. Health Care: Root Causes of Today’s Hierarchy and Systems of Power

In health care, we are united by our belief in providing the highest quality care to every patient. To do so, we must better understand the past, and work intentionally toward a healthier future.

This inaugural event in the National Health Equity Grand Rounds series will highlight the root causes of present-day health inequities by tracing the social, economic, political, geographic, and environmental forces that shape opportunity for health in the United States. Keynote speaker Harriet A. Washington, MA, author of Medical Apartheid, will explore the history of structural inequities in health care and unethical medical experimentation followed by a panel conversation moderated by American Medical Association (AMA) Chief Health Equity Officer Aletha Maybank, MD, MPH, and featuring Rupa Marya, MD, Jack Resneck, Jr., MD, and David Ansell, MD, MPH.
