2020–21 DEI Webinar Series

As part of its commitment to promote and champion diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in academic medicine, the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine will host a free five-part DEI webinar series.

Next webinar:

Applied Health Equity: the Black Coalition Against Covid as a Potential Model
Thursday, February 25
3:00 p.m.

Speaker:

Reed Tuckson, MD

Description:

While COVID-19 has completely changed all aspects of life in the United States, it has also further highlighted the glaring inequities in the American health care system, and in particular the impact on underrepresented groups and other marginalized communities. Addressing these inequities is a major challenge for departments of internal medicine that have been on the front-line of the pandemic fight since the beginning.

Alliance members are invited to attend the upcoming webinar, “Applied Health Equity: The Black Coalition against COVID as a Potential Model,” Thursday, February 25, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST.

Facilitators will provide an overview of the impact that trust, patient-physician relationships, and the structure of the healthcare system have on health inequities and how the Black Coalition Against COVID can be a framework for faculty, staff, and learners in departments of internal medicine can begin to combat these challenges.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify barriers to implementation science in the African American Community and covid vaccine acceptance  
  • Identify potential solutions using a holistic community based approach
