Online Symposium: Population Health Equity for People with Intellectual Disability, Autism, and Mental Health Challenges – Sep 14

Posted by Social Innovations Journal on September 5, 2023

Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible, while acknowledging that not everyone is the same or requires the same services. The issue of health equity crosses over many sectors and populations, including disability, child welfare, criminal and juvenile justice, and aging.

Join our expert panelists to explore the root causes of health inequity, the role and impact of the social determinants of health, and the drivers that will advance health equity for special populations. You will hear about best practices for advocacy, model programs and integrated care models, services that address health inequity for special populations, and policy issues that have led to systemic healthcare challenges for these groups and what equitable solutions could look like.

We hope you will join us for this dynamic discussion to learn what service providers, policymakers, government agencies, families, and advocates can do to be part of the solution that ensures health equity for these special populations.

Date and Time: September 14, 2023, 3:30-5:00 PM
