Battling Racial Health Disparities in Employer-Sponsored Healthcare

This is a NEBGH Members only event. If you are interested in attending and not a member, please contact Jen at jfucci@nebgh.org


No employer seeks to create disparities in the health benefits and healthcare services provided to Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) populations. Nonetheless, health outcomes are worse for these employees – the result of bias and racism embedded in our systems. How can employers become allies in the move toward health equity?


Panel I: Finding the Gaps in Meeting Health Needs of BIPOC Populations

Employers discuss how they’re using data and anecdotal evidence to identify health disparities in their population and what they’re doing with this information.

Panel II: Identifying Resources and Partners to Help Address Disparities  

Hear innovative approaches to helping BIPOCs with prevention and PCP care, advocacy and navigation, and maternal and mental health
