The Advocacy Exchange logo

The need for cultural competency and individualized care can make a drastic difference in a person’s chances of positive outcomes. In 2021, The Advocacy Exchange created a space for advocates to talk about the realities of racial and ethnic health and healthcare disparities through live sessions and Working Groups. Dr. Rachel Bond, MD, FACC, Co-Chair of the Women and Children’s Committee for the Association of Black Cardiologists, Inc. and Sheila Thorne, President and CEO, Multicultural Healthcare Marketing Group LLC have dedicated their careers to illuminating health care disparities and making systemic changes that provide individuals the best opportunities for quality healthcare. Join us for this impactful conversation, moderated by Brad Love, Ph.D., leader of the Access to Care Working Group, as we have an honest conversation about what effective, competent and equitable health care looks like.
