Keynote Address: Racism – A Historical Foundation for Systemic Disparities — Health Equity Forum 2023

December 1, 2023

This keynote address kicked off the 2023 RARE Health Equity Forum.

Racial inequities persist in all of our systems and institutions, including the healthcare system. This talk will focus on the historic roots of those inequities, and the role the scientific community played in cementing those disparities. Although attempts have been made to address these gaps in health outcomes, few–and limited–gains have been made. We will examine these flawed methods and consider ways in which we can become more effective systems-change-agents.
