Anjali Bhagra - Mayo Clinic

When it comes to healthcare, the playing field should be level. Yet that goal hasn’t been realized, as CDC statistics show that Hispanic and Black communities were hospitalized at a rate 4.7 times higher than those of white communities. Therefore, it’s critical to address health equity and what changes need to happen to make the level playing field a reality. In this timely discussion, Fast Company and Optum will convene top executives from across healthcare, government, and academia for a forward-thinking conversation on addressing these disparities and what steps organizations can take to build a more inclusive healthcare system.
