Health equity remains an elusive challenge to address within our healthcare system.
Achieving a healthy life and lifestyle is too often predicated on social, cultural, economic, and environmental issues. Where we live; how we live; our identities, genders, ethnicities, upbringing and heritage… all play a role in determining our health.
Join us to explore how race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, age, and disability affect our health, and see what RTI’s experts are doing to address these issues and find solutions to improve health equity around the globe.
