April 2022: The Radiology Health Equity Coalition is pleased to offer a five-part webinar series that will deliver practical, actionable tools that individual radiologic professionals, imaging practices, and healthcare institutions can utilize to improve imaging health equity.
Healthcare disparities and inequities in the United States have been well-documented for decades. At the national level, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and others have examined disparities in healthcare utilization, behavioral risk factors for disease, environmental hazards, social determinants of health, and morbidity and mortality.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the issue of disparities and healthcare inequities has taken sharp focus, demanding both attention and action. Since medical imaging and therapy impacts most patients at some point in their care journey, radiology professionals have the potential to be unifying change agents across an inequitable healthcare system.
