Achieving Health Equity in Georgia: Adaptive Leadership In Times of Change
October 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic unmasked dramatic disparities, with African Americans and Latinx community members accounting for a disproportionate share of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths. Crises often amplify existing inequities and highlight the urgent need to address the root causes of health inequities.
Wellstar Health System’s Center for Health Equity and the Georgia Health Policy Center are excited to host a webinar series this fall focused on achieving equity in Georgia, in partnership with the Atlanta Regional Collaboration for Health Improvement and the Partnership for Southern Equity.
This series will engage community, clinical, and other partners in building a community-level understanding of health equity by exploring the root causes of common and persistent inequities and providing evidence-informed, practical tips and tools to address these inequities in Georgia.
Each session explores a specific equity challenge and offers examples from the field of efforts to achieve equity.
All sessions are from 12-1:15pm ET. Zoom link provided after registration.
This foundational session provides a framework for how participants can strive to achieve equity in their sphere of influence. To achieve health equity in Georgia, adaptive leadership skills are needed. Participants will gain an understanding of the differences between technical and adaptive challenges, the skills needed to resolve both, and experience addressing an adaptive challenge.
