Diversity and Inclusion Strategies to Achieve Health Equity

Presented by CHRISTUS Health, a 2016 Equity of Care Honoree

Health disparities experienced by our minority communities, as well as the poor and underserved, continue to be a challenge for all health systems. This Diversity Dialogue will examine the interrelationships between diversity and inclusion, culturally competent care, community partnerships and population health strategies. Additionally, we will discuss metrics and incentives to help promote a culture of health equity, diversity and inclusion.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the relationship between patient adherence to treatment and cultural competence
  • Discuss examples of leadership-driven approaches in promoting diversity and health equity goals
  • Understand how to use external CHNA and internal EMR data sets to support community health efforts that benefit our patients and the populations that we serve
  • Discuss communication strategies to garner support in creating a health equity movement within your organization.

Featured Speakers:


Tiffany Capeles, director of health equity, CHRISTUS Health
Marcos Pesquera, system vice-president, health equity, diversity and inclusion, CHRISTUS Health
