How to Heal Healthcare

Addressing the Causes of COVID-19 Health Disparities

We’ll walk participants through the view of our health system from two vantage points – family physician delivering patient care, and healthcare innovation professional. How did we get one year into the pandemic with health disparities so drastically thrown into view? What are some efforts taking place to reform our healthcare system?

Workshop Time and Date: Tuesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. CT
Workshop Lead: Kathryn Morcom ’05 & Baylis Beard ’05

Registration will close at May 3, at 5 p.m. CT. For any questions or concerns, please contact Jessica Stewart, senior associate director of alumni and donor relations, at stewarje@grinnell.edu.
