National Health Equity Grand Rounds: Follow the Money!
May 9, 2023
National Health Equity Grand Rounds logo

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 May 9, 2023, will explore how profit in health care incentivizes inequity by perpetuating and exacerbating segregated systems of care, which serves to maintain class inequality. The event takes place from 1-2:30 p.m. Central. 

The event will feature speakers who are dismantling inequity within and beyond health care. Expert speakers will challenge the audience to participate in the reimagination of a health care system that centers on community and healing over profiteering.

They will also highlight strategies for disrupting 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.
