The World Health Organization defines health inequities as differences in health status and distribution of health resources across different population groups that arise from the social conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age. COVID-19 and protests for racial equity and social justice are spotlighting our nation’s longstanding health inequities and sparking renewed efforts to address systemic racism and structural barriers to health equity.
Implementation science research frameworks and methods are well suited for identifying what works to redress health inequities. Join RTI for a virtual discussion with Ana Baumann, Eva Woodward, Lori Carter-Edwards, Pastor James Gailliard, Cory Bradley, and Sara Jacobs on the intersection of implementation science and health equity.
This event is sponsored by the Consortium for Implementation Science, a joint endeavor of UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and RTI International.
