60th Harriet Cook Carter Lecture: The Cost of Health Inequities and the Role of Nurses in the Future of Healthcare
Health inequities now cost the U.S. health care system about $320 billion and if not addressed by 2040, their cost is projected to reach an unsustainable $1 trillion. Join Dean Guilamo-Ramos for a fascinating discussion about the causes and possible solutions for health inequities with special guest experts from Deloitte's Center for Health Solutions and Health Equity Institute. Topics will include the role of nursing in addressing health inequities and how new regulations, financing models and technology can help expand health care access and reduce costs.
