Aspen Ideas Health: Realizing the Promise of Health for All

At Aspen Ideas Health 2022, PhRMA sponsored a panel on health equity, Realizing the Promise of Health for All, which was moderated by STAT’s Nicholas St. Fleur. The panel acknowledged the equity advances made in recent years, but also highlighted their own experiences and discussed tangible actions the healthcare industry must take in order to ensure equitable health for all.

The panelists also discussed the importance of confronting prohibitive insurance costs, addressing ingrained systemic biases, fixing distrust in the medical system and considering impacts of health care deserts – all barriers to access that stem from past abuses and contribute to shorter lives and higher disease incidences in communities of color.

June 23, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. MST

Speakers:

  • Jerome Adams, Executive Director of Health Equity Initiatives, Purdue University
  • Quita Highsmith, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Genentech
