2019 Pennsylvania Health Equity Summit

2019 Health Equity Summit

Join us for the 2019 Pennsylvania Health Equity Summit! 

This year's summit will accelerate efforts to eradicate health disparities in Pennsylvania by 2030. This audacious goal will only happen when key leaders come together to discuss innovative ideas, promising practices, and a shared agenda.

Change leaders will learn how social determinants of health and equity impact individual and population health, examine innovative solutions used nationally and in Pennsylvania to reduce health inequalities in both rural and urban settings, and determine and commit to steps organizations, communities and individuals can take to increase health equity and eliminate health disparities. 

Where: Thomas Jefferson University, Alumni Hall, 1020 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Friday, November 1, 2019
  9 a.m.— 5 p.m. with a networking reception to follow.
