WASHINGTON DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- MAY 10, 2023: In 2016, Health Affairs convened a "Health Equity Summit" with more than two dozen leaders from philanthropy and academia to examine the research and gaps in knowledge on reducing inequities in health care. That meeting was the start of a years-long effort by Health Affairs to drill down on these topics and has resulted in multiple thematic issues of the journal and innumerable individual studies, culminating in the 2020 launch of the Health Affairs Health Equity program.

In February 2023, leaders of the Health Affairs Equity and Digital teams published a study in the journal, Learned Publishing, detailing its efforts to change how health policy research may perpetuate inequities. In "A Seat For All: Advancing racial equity in scholarly publishing of health policy and health services research," the authors discuss the steps taken by Health Affairs to intentionally develop programs and modify processes to advance equity and opportunities for all within its enterprise.

On Tuesday, May 23, you are invited to join us for a "Lunch and Learn" event at which manuscript authors and guests will discuss the journal's Health Equity journey and share with the audience lessons learned during this process. The session will be hosted by University of California Davis Professor Michelle Ko, a member of the Health Affairs Health Equity Advisory Committee, and feature Tulane University Assistant Professor Andrew Anderson, a recent graduate of the Health Affairs Health Equity Fellows Training (HEFT) program.

This event will be open to all.

Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Time: 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Eastern
