The pandemic has heightened awareness about existing inequities in our society and the ways in which they affect health care, including kidney care. As part of Rogosin’s commitment to providing the best care to all patients, this year our annual Symposium was presented in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian’s Dalio Center for Health Justice. Established in 2020, the Dalio Center “aims to understand and address the root causes of health inequities with the goal of setting a new standard of health justice for the communities we serve.”
The two-part virtual Symposium included presentations and discussions focused on how social and health disparities affect kidney health and care, and opportunities to improve the future prognosis. Leading nephrologists and educators explored the impact of race on disparities in diagnosis and treatment, how inequities are perpetuated, and efforts underway to provide all communities with comprehensive health education and quality care. We also heard from B. Cameron Webb, MD, JD, White House Senior Policy Advisor for COVID-19 Equity, about how the Biden Administration is deploying federal resources to narrow disparities exacerbated by COVID-19.
