The Bay Area Medical Society Coalition, representing 12,000 practicing physicians, introduces the last session of a 4-part webinar series focused on understanding and dismantling harmful behaviors and patterns in healthcare that disproportionality affect health outcomes for patients from vulnerable communities. Through a combination of robust presentations from prestigious practitioners and a cumulative panel on race, gender, and equity in healthcare, this series aims to highlight the importance of diversity and inclusion and to arm you with the skills and language to facilitate safer environments and better patient outcomes. 

The COVID-19 epidemic has laid bare the glaring inequities within our health care system and the many points of failure that threaten our organization's abilities to provide adequate care in times of crisis. To survive this season, thrive in the new normal, and future-proof their practices, both physicians and organizations alike must shift to more inclusive and innovative approaches to patient care and crisis management.  


Using COVID-19 as a case study, this webinar presentation will: 
  • Highlight the consequences of inequitable health policy and practice
  • Explore both near-term and long-term COVID-19 scenarios  
  • Discuss how to build to personal and institutional resilience and re-emerge stronger, more inclusive, and better prepared from to handle crisis
