Living a full life after a diagnosis, or managing a chronic disease, is a relatively new focus in global health and healthcare. To celebrate National Cancer Survivor Month in the United States (U.S.) in June, we will delve into the topic of living with a disease and explore what this means for individuals around the world.
COVID Advocacy Exchange: Strategies to Support Patients: A Focus on Mental Health and Patient-Centric Care
More than a year into a global pandemic, the need for awareness, connection and resources to support wellbeing and mental health are more important than ever. In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month in the U.S. in May, join us to hear from two esteemed speakers on this topic.
As we move into April and recognize National Minority Health Month, our session will be all about representation; learning from and honoring meaningful change driven by members of our communities. Our working groups will also share progress made so far in our four focus areas.
In this COVID Advocacy Exchange workshop, Gagen MacDonald will offer practical approaches to keep you and your organization resilient against the backdrop of an unfolding global pandemic and a massive societal change.
Our second Working Group session on March 11 will identify those people who are most impacted in each of these areas, and the stakeholders we need to engage to create meaningful change.
In this session, we’ll establish four unique working groups that will address needs in these areas and the opportunities to make meaningful impacts. We welcome you to choose how you participate in one or more of these working groups to use your voice to lead, or learn from others about the progress they are bringing to life.
In the midst of the disruption and disaster wrought by COVID in 2020, the advocacy community has accomplished some great things. Join us on January 14th as we take stock of the year by discussing the accomplishments that did happen and consider what more we can do in 2021!
As healthcare systems have increased in size, it has become difficult for patients, doctors and caregivers to have meaningful conversations. And … it can sometimes feel like physicians, patients and advocates, and industry all speak different languages.
We live in an era where technology has made healthcare more available than ever before, and yet we struggle to deliver fair and equitable care to those who need it most. Now we have a chance to reassess and correct systemic imbalances in our health systems. What will we do with this opportunity? What steps need to be taken to eliminate disparities in access and treatment outcomes?
During this live session on the COVID Advocacy Exchange, keynote speaker Adam Grant will discuss moving forward and rebuilding, together. As an organizational psychologist, Adam is a leading expert on how we can find motivation and meaning, and his TED Talks have been viewed more than 20 million times.
