The AHA announced key leadership appointments to reflect the importance of health equity and workforce. Joy Lewis was promoted to serve in a newly-created role, senior vice president of health equity strategies.
The COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate impact on people of color has accelerated the integration of health equity into health care strategy playbooks across the nation. To support hospitals and health systems starting from different points on their journey to strengthen health equity, the AHA is preparing four new guidance and resource toolkits to share evidence-based practices to inform organizational next steps.
The American Hospital Association and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) are helping hospitals build greater connections within their communities to ensure safe, equitable and valuable health care options for all patients. See how in our Health Equity Grant Program video.
