Achieving Equity in Health Care: A VAHHS Virtual Meeting


Maria Mercedes Avilla, Ph. D., an expert in health care equity training, will help us imagine the first steps we need to achieve equity in Vermont's health care system. After her presentation, we will break up into smaller groups to determine the next steps to actively change our policies, procedures and actions to rid our system of racial, cultural and ethnic bias. If you've never been to a VAHHS Annual Meeting, this is a great first taste.
