Keynote: Steps & Tools Toward Racial Health Equity
California Program Director, Health Leads
We are excited to welcome Artair Rogers of Health Leads, an innovation hub that runs both national and local initiatives that address the deep societal roots of racial inequity that impact our health.
Artair is the California Program Director and also leads the West Coast’s community partnership portfolio, which involves developing effective partnerships between health systems and community-based organizations and incorporating community participatory research in the development of social needs interventions.
Artair’s work has been featured in Medical Care, Journal of General Internal Medicine, NEJM Catalyst, and Stanford Social Innovation Review. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Public Policy Leadership and Sociology from the University of Mississippi and a Master’s degree in Health System Administration from Georgetown University. He is also a member of the Robert Wood Johnson Culture of Health Leaders Program.
Artair’s desire is to continue to work to see efforts of health equity continue to merge with healthcare delivery operations to afford all individuals equal opportunities to obtain their optimal health status.
