The 2nd Annual National Health Disparities Elimination Summit is the result of a successful collaborative partnership between the Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (CICATS) at the University of Connecticut and the W. Montague Cobb/NMA Health Institute, made possible through the generous support of the Connecticut Legislative Black & Puerto Rican Caucus. The goal of this endeavor is to bring various stakeholders together to provide important information and resources to eliminate health disparities.

This year’s Summit will take a holistic approach and focus on how different environments, such as the physical environment (e.g. Flint, Michigan water crisis), healthcare environment (e.g. role of diversity in improving outcomes) and social environment (societal structural issues such as gun violence), are creating or exacerbating health disparities. Where you live matters. Therefore, patients, health care providers, political leaders and community leaders can each make a positive impact to improve their environment, resulting in improved health outcomes in their communities.
