Contagion® Community delves into some of the social factors that create and widen healthcare disparities.
In surveying our audience, 75% of respondents viewed healthy equity as a major issue within medicine. Infectious disease often disproportionately occurs along the lines of ethnicity, race, class, education, sexual orientation, geographic location, and more. The entwined nature of healthcare inequity and social factors inhibits us from examining infectious disease objectively, which is why Contagion Community spotlights underserved populations.
Through interviews with experts, we will offer insights into the issues associated with healthcare inequities and examine which strategies and solutions are being deployed to overcome these issues.
Contagion Community is a marriage of major conversations occurring in hospitals, labs, academics, and communities.
