The Louisville Metro Center for Health Equity and Norton Healthcare Centers are co-sponsoring a summit on health equity later this month.
Health department spokesman Dave Langdon says this is the second in a series of summits aimed reducing the racial, socioeconomic and other barriers that some citizens encounter when it comes to access to health care resources.
“Basically, what we want people to walk away (with) is a sense of urgency on how to create and expand policies to make changes to achieve health equity in our city,” he said.
Langdon says the free event will include a presentation by the associate director of the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute, and discussion of how new technologies can help reduce health care disparities.
The summit begins at 7:30am on April 16 at the Muhammad Ali Center.
