December 7-8, 2021| Virtual Event

Health equity is crucial to ensuring access for all individuals to access essential care – meanwhile pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are pushing for necessary long-term changes to better meet the needs of vulnerable individuals and populations. With this being said, it is imperative for life science companies to discuss and educate both internally and externally regarding diversity, inclusion, and access to healthcare.
Today, organizations across the biomedical research and healthcare ecosystems are mobilizing to help remove the obstacles to medical innovation, quality healthcare, and optimal health outcomes for underserved patients – making it important to address the broader health disparity challenges in the U.S. Attendees will learn practical solutions, share perspectives, and meet new industry and marketplace colleagues. This event can enhance these collective efforts and opportunities to collaborate internally as well to move health equity.
