Earlier this month, the Nashville Health Care Council and community health collaborative NashvilleHealth co-hosted a virtual conversation on Health Equity and Action to Eliminate Disparities, part 3 of a 3-part series. We’re sharing this discussion with you today, where I’m joined by leading experts in the field:

  • Joe Cacchione, Executive Vice President of Clinical & Network Services at Ascension, where he oversees system-wide clinical and care functions and subsidiaries, with a goal of addressing the holistic needs of patients. Prior to joining Ascension in 2017, he served as chairman of Operations and Strategy at the Cleveland Clinic's Heart & Vascular Institute.

  • And Niesha Foster, Vice President of Product Access, Global Health & Patient Access at Pfizer, where her team is focused on addressing the patient affordability challenge. Ms. Foster also co-leads Pfizer’s Multicultural Center of Excellence which advances health equity in diverse communities.

In our discussion, we explore efforts to address inequity at the patient level from research to the bedside.

I want to thank our event sponsor RLDatix for making this panel possible.
