Empowered #patientchat – Disparities in Care: Equality vs Equity

You’re Invited! Join us for an Empowered #patientchat with special guest Diverse Health Hub (@DHealthHub). We’re excited to chat with them about the disparities in healthcare. You can read more about Diverse Health Hub here: https://www.diversehealthhub.com/

Disparities refer to differences in health and health care between population groups. Disparities occur across many dimensions, including race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation.

Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T#:) Questions:

T1: What does health disparity mean to you? #patientchat

T2: What are some examples of health disparities? How do they play a role in healthcare? #patientchat

T3: What is the difference between health equality and health equity? #patientchat

T4: What can be done to achieve health equity? What challenges need to be addressed? #patientchat

T5: Do you know of any successful initiatives that are reducing health disparities? #patientchat
