The Heartland Conference on Health Equity and Patient Centered Care highlights community – academic partnerships and encourages open discussion among academic health centers, community health workers, faith-based community, and community-based service organizations.
Participants will engage with other regional health researchers, community-based organizations, and public health professionals to address health equity in our communities and region.
The webinar is titled Perspectives on Social Determinants of Health in the Heartland. The goal of this event is to provide a regional perspective on how SDOH impact health equity. Each presenter represents a different sector, state, and/or community in HHS Region VII (Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas). Each presenter will give a 10-15 minute presentation. Each pair of presentations will be followed by a short attendee breakout session to debrief presentations, develop questions and build connectivity. The event team will be collecting questions from attendees and sharing them with the presenter during the final large session Q&A at noon.
