Equity and Social Justice Series: Heart Health


Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 4:00pm to 6:00pm



The Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) series have discussed and continue to address a number of issues surrounding health equity and disparities, and their impact on vulnerable populations. February is American Heart Month. This event’s goal is to have a conversation about the existing disparities in cardiology and more importantly discuss the interventions needed or in place to improve health equity.
