During the October 10th event, expert speakers invited participants to reevaluate how we think about data on race and ethnicity. We dove deep into the ways race data impacts our institutions and health care systems, shapes priorities and determines how resources get to the communities they serve.
Speakers discussed the failures and harms in our approaches to collecting, analyzing, reporting, and leveraging race, ethnicity, and other key demographic data in public health and health care. This virtual conversation serves as a foundation for understanding the critical next steps needed to hold health systems, providers, researchers, and government accountable to historically marginalized and institutionally underserved communities.
