University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

As a tactic of the FY24 True North Learning Health Systems pillar, the Ambulatory Health Equity Workgroup has organized virtual, educational sessions that aim to address Health Equity knowledge gaps for Ambulatory faculty and staff. The sessions will feature various UCSF health equity subject matter experts. Attendees will hear from these leaders on a range of topics including social drivers of health and health disparities, race/ethnicity, gender identity, payor bias, language-based inequity, and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in discussion with the subject matter experts, as well as one another. The goal of these sessions is to address and improve healthcare equity and cultural sensitivity within our clinics for both the patients and each other.   

The next session is scheduled for Friday, April 5th at 11:10am with UCSF Anesthesiologist and Pain Management Specialist, Dr. Lawrence Poree. It will focus on racial disparities in pain management.
