Webinars Explore COVID-19 Racial Disparities and Unconscious Bias

Posted on July 23, 2020

The MHA webinar series Leadership and Resiliency: Navigating Through and Beyond COVID-19 explores several mission-critical leadership qualities that leaders need to help traverse this difficult time. The final three webinars in the series are scheduled from 1 to 2 p.m. Aug. 6, Aug. 20 and Sept. 3. 

How Healthcare Can Lead a “Quiet Revolution” for Healing will be presented Aug. 6 by Dayna Bowen Matthew, JD, PhD.  Bowen Matthew will outline the historic and contemporary role that healthcare providers play in increasing health equity, how critical it is to address fear resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the importance of building coordinated public messaging about the coronavirus.

Gloria Goins, former chief diversity and inclusion officer at Bon Secours Mercy Health System, will present How Unconscious Bias Harms Patients During the COVID-19 Pandemic Aug. 20. Goins will summarize how to address, support and manage racial disparities related to COVID-19 and practical actions leaders can take to improve cultural competency in healthcare operations.

The final webinar, The New Healthcare Ecosystem, will be presented Sept. 3 by Tom Koulopoulos, chairman of global futures think tank The Delphi Group. This session will highlight the threat of future pandemics, the questions surrounding development of new pharmaceuticals and therapies to treat disease and supply chain inconsistencies, and possible answers for the future delivery system. 

Members can register for one of more of the sessions for $99 each. Questions about this webinar series should be directed to Erin Steward at the MHA.
