Host: Sarah Thomas, managing director, Deloitte Services LP
Although many life sciences and health care organizations have been working towards improving social determinants of health, the COVID-19 crisis and recent events around social justice issues and racism have shone a spotlight on how certain communities of color are being negatively affected. We’ll discuss:
- Effects of racism on health and well-being.
- How the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected communities of color.
- Ways digital technology can be a driver for change.
- What organizations can do to help build a culture of anti-racism and a framework for action.
