In the wake of a global pandemic and increased national awareness of systemic racism, the time is now for sustainable action to address health and social inequities. This year’s international conference, hosted by the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association and SharedCare, will focus on acknowledging and addressing the systemic racial and socioeconomic inequities in healthcare and will examine a path forward together. We will focus, not only on research and ideas, but actionable steps to help bring equitable health care to all. We will take a close look at the rapid growth of telehealth as a sustainable part of healthcare and examine ways to leverage virtual care to reduce disparities and enhance access to needed care. Additionally, we will address the need for health care leaders to impress and practice self-care, resiliency and cultural humility to make this journey one that lasts.

Our American Dilemma: Placing an Equity Lens on the Struggle for Diversity and Inclusion2020 CFHA Conference Plenary
Our American Dilemma: Placing an Equity Lens on the Struggle for Diversity and Inclusion
Presentation by Dr. Will Ross (MD, MPH)
With the backdrop of the protests over police brutality against minorities in 2020, and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic which unveiled marked health disparities, physician Will Ross will talk about the ongoing struggle to achieve inclusivity and diversity in healthcare and its relationship to the goal of health equity for all. Dr. Ross argues that as public health leaders have declared the epidemic of gun violence in America a public health threat, they must similarly call out the root cause of police brutality towards people of color and the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the African American, Latino, and Native American populations. Embracing racism as a public health crisis requires affirming racism as a structural determinant of health and developing a strategic plan to unravel and excise it from the fabric of our community.
Our Community at the Intersection of COVID-19 & Black Lives Matter2020 CFHA Conference Plenary
Our Community at the Intersection of COVID-19 & Black Lives Matter: Reflections on 2020 & Where We Go Next
This visually inspired panel session will begin with reflections from each panelist, using pictures and data, to reflect on where we have been as a community of champions of integrated care. The five panelists from within the CFHA community will provide their reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protest movement and will challenge each other and the CFHA community to rise to the challenges of the moment in a sustained fashion. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own experiences and engage the panelists in answering the hard questions of where we go from here. A key focus of the panel will be identifying key action steps across the continuum of the systems of healthcare delivery and policymaking (eg. CLAS standards implementation, revisioning quality metrics, Telehealth maintenance plans etc.).
