The AMA’s National Health Equity Grand Rounds is a virtual quarterly series that looks to deepen understanding and shape the national discourse around health inequities and opportunities to improve the health of our nation.

The event on Aug. 8, 2023, features speakers who will challenge the 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. The event takes place from 1-2:30 p.m. Central.
