Northeast Health Equity Consortium Hosts Third and Final Webinar in the Series
The American Heart Association’s Northeast Health Equity Consortium’s (NHEC) webinar series wraps up on October 16, 2019 featuring, Where the Rubber Meets the Road: Innovative Uses of Data for Social Transformation. This webinar will take a deep look at social determinants of health data.
This last webinar is hosted by Anurag Gupta, MPhil, JD, Founder & CEO of Be More and Aristotle Manan, CEO, bosWell, and takes place from 1PM – 2PM, EST. Participation is free, but registration is limited to 200 participants. People can register for the webinar at the Consortium’s website, https://nhec.heart.org/ The webinar will include time for questions and answers.
Anurag Gupta, MPhil, JD, Founder & CEO of Be More and Aristotle Manan, CEO, bosWell, two of last year’s Innovation Challenge Winners, will lead a lively discussion of how they are using health equity data to further their work. BE MORE is using mobile technology and data to train healthcare professionals in science-based tools to break the habit of unconscious bias. Utilizing client management software that streamlines workflows and data reporting, bosWell is redefining the “medical home” for low-income Americans by extending it to include community-based organizations (CBOs) such as food pantries, mobile health clinics, resource centers and shelters – the spectrum of touch points serving those in need.
The NHEC’s mission is to engage organizations and promote change in policy, practices and programs and communicates these changes that improve cardiovascular and stroke-related health outcomes in communities disproportionately impacted by these diseases.
The Consortium was established by the American Heart Association with the generous support of the Aetna Foundation. The Consortium is currently chaired by Chien-Chi Huang, Founder & Executive Director, Asian Women for Health, Boston, MA; and Lenny Lopez, MD, Associate Professor & Chief of Hospital, UCSF School of Medicine, San Francisco, CA; and, Marcus M. McKinney, D.Min., LPC, President, Reimagining Healthcare, Hartford, CT.
Please note: The original date of the When the Rubber Meets the Road: Innovative Uses of Data for Social Transformation was scheduled for September 26th and has been rescheduled for October 16th.
