WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- MAY 1, 2023:
The Disparities Leadership Program (DLP) is our year-long, hands-on executive education program focused exclusively on helping health care leaders achieve equity in quality. The program is designed to help you translate the latest understanding of disparities into realistic solutions you can adopt within your organization. The DSC has the unique advantage of 15 years of experience developing and implementing the DLP, the only program of its kind in the nation.
Through the DLP, we develop leaders prepared to meet the challenges of health care transformation by improving quality for populations who experience disparities. The program has three main goals:
Completed applications are due July 7th, 2023
- To equip health care leaders with a rich understanding of the causes of disparities, the vision to implement solutions, and the strategies to transform their organization to deliver high-value health care.
- To help leaders create strategic plans or projects to advance their work in reducing disparities in a customized way, with practical benefits tailored to every organization.
- To create a professional learning and networking environment for leaders in health care to engage in peer-to-peer learning, crowdsourcing of ideas and strategies for reducing disparities, resource sharing, collaboration, and ongoing support in the form of a national DLP alumni network.
