A Message from Fred - Video Vignettes

August 25, 2014

The Institute for Diversity in Health Management, in collaboration with Equity of Care, is featuring video vignettes of health care leaders sharing their ideas on eliminating health care disparities by increasing the collection of race, ethnic and language preference (REaL) data, increasing leadership and workforce diversity and providing culturally competent care.  Interviewed during "Equity: Moving Beyond Diversity", IFD's 2014 National Leadership and Education Conference, these leaders agree that while hospitals have improved quality of care for diverse patient populations and increased leadership diversity, more work needs to be done.
