2022 Health Equity Summit

September 20 – September 21, 2022

9:00 am CDT -1:30 pm CDT

Your race can have a significant impact on the healthcare you receive and even your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. How can we as providers make a difference?
The American Heart Association has declared structural racism as a cause of poor health and premature death from heart disease and stroke, recognizing that a person’s race or ethnicity can increase a person’s chance of experiencing a heart attack or stroke—or surviving it.
In partnership with the Association of Black Cardiologists, PCNA’s 2022 Health Equity Summit will offer solutions, provide tools and tips, and outline steps that can be taken at the personal, local, and national level to close the gap in health disparities.
Topics include:

  • Cultural Safety versus Cultural Competency in the Pursuit of Health Equity
  • Treatment Bias and Cardiovascular Health of LGBTQ+ Patients
  • Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Lower Limb Amputation: An Epidemic of Poverty and Race
  • Environmental Justice and Cardiovascular Health
  • Cardiovascular Health Among Immigrant, Displaced, and Unhoused Populations
  • Reducing Maternal Mortality through Comprehensive Antenatal and Postnatal Cardiovascular Care
