Webinar: Addressing Health Disparities: A Community-Based Approach – Dec 1

Posted by Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations on November 16, 2021

Health disparities have many dimensions, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and geography, originating from long-standing inequalities. Efforts to address disparities must be part of a broader endeavor to transform health care. Improving the quality of care delivered to the population is an essential step towards building thriving, resilient communities.

During this session, Dr. Nicholas DeGregorio, Senior Medical Director, UPMC for You, UPMC Insurance Division, and Dr. Johanna Vidal-Phelan, Senior Medical Director, Quality and Pediatrics, UPMC Insurance Division, will:

  • Define the key pillars of addressing health disparities
  • Examine the relationships between health disparities, social determinants of health (SDOH), and health outcomes
  • Share UPMC Health Plan’s efforts to reduce health care disparities

Date and Time: Wednesday, December 1 | 1:30 PM – 2:00 PM
