What are the healthcare disparities and inequities?
What is the impact of social determinants of health?
Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age that shape health. There is now a great deal of data and evidence of racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care which negatively impacts lives. Get the facts. How significant is the difference? Who and what is responsible for differences? What is being done and what can be done? What is Manatee County doing to address and improve these outcomes? We are pleased to present two qualified and excellent speakers on this topic:
- Dr. Randall C. Morgan Jr., orthopedic physician. Dr. Morgan has been in the frontlines of the fight for medical equality for 46 years. Currently he is a practicing non-surgical orthopedic doctor and CEO of the W. Montague Cobb/National Medical Association Health Institute – an institute committed to finding solutions for racial and ethnic disparities in health care.
