The Diversity Dilemma: Transforming healthcare, one caregiver at a time – New Haven Breakfast and Panel
November 7 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am EST
Can diversifying your healthcare system’s staff and care providers improve outcomes for patients and improve patient retention? The answer appears to be ‘yes,’ but many healthcare systems are struggling to diversify staff and care providers at all levels, not just the lowest positions on the organizational ladder.
The United States will be over 50% non-white or multi-racial by 2045. This means that patients, doctors, staff, and other constituents of healthcare systems will be predominantly non-white. However, it is now well-documented that people receive different quality of healthcare based on their gender, ethnicity, and race. 
What can a healthcare system do to diversify? Come join us for a lively discussion with three panelists at the top in their healthcare fields, facilitated by Laura Freebairn-Smith, about what it takes to diversify healthcare systems and why it matters.
