WGHA Fireside Chat: Equitable Access to Health

August 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Health access is fundamental to achieving health equity. Inequity in health access is complex, perpetuated in part by systemic challenges but sometimes further compounded by specific approaches to public and global health.  Yet failure to achieve equitable access to health has real consequences in health outcomes for everyone.

Join this fireside chat where we will hear from Mariam Zameer, Senior Manager and Team Lead, Health Systems at VillageReach and Dr. Ahmed Ali, founder and executive director of the Somali Health Board (SHB).  Participants will hear from these individuals who are working on closing the Equitable Access to Health gaps in their programs, and receive valuable insights for solutions both in the United States and abroad.  Feel free to review the detailed speaker biographies prior to our convening.

This event will be followed by a facilitated audience Q&A session afterwards.
