Live at MATTER: Defining Health Equity

Apr 14, 12:00 pm

What is health equity? Where do care gaps show up in the American healthcare system? How can technology and innovation be consciously designed and deployed to positively make a change?

Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady joins us to answer these questions and more, kicking off MATTER’s latest event series, Advancing Health Equity. The series aims to unravel the various forms of inequities affecting our healthcare system today and explore the role that innovation and technology can play in shaping a more equitable future. Future discussions will follow two tracks: resilient communities and inclusive technology.

In this event co-produced with MATTER partner HC3 (Healthcare Council of Chicago), Dr. Arwardy delivers a keynote address to align our community on key components of health equity. Following the keynote, Dr. Arwady further discusses how technology and innovation have contributed to the gaps in healthcare we see today across different demographics in a fireside chat moderated by The Chicago Community Trust CEO Helene Gayle.
