Join us as we sit-down and have an in-depth conversation with Dr. Annette Gadegbeku, the New Director of Adult Medicine at Philadelphia FIGHT community Health Centers. She will discuss how medical providers and allied healthcare as well as social service professionals can reach health equity in a troubled and fraught system that limits access to care and propagates adverse determinants of health. She will discuss what she and Philadelphia FIGHT are doing to lead the charge in reaching health equity, and what her personal vision is for a healthier and more just city, and country.
- Dr. Gadegbeku will provide practical advice to Black doctors interested in family, community, and preventative health.
- Participants will learn about diversity initiatives at an FQHC like Philadelphia FIGHT and how one can replicate them in their practice or community.
- Discuss the most pressing areas of equity, and what practical measures one can take to achieve health equity.
