10th Annual We Can Do Better Conference
Learn. Connect. Act. Social Determinants of Equity Do you ever wish the health transformation debate was actually about health? That it was going to positively impact you, and the people you care most about? Our annual conference does just that, brings the focus back to what is most important — improving our health, better experiences when we get care, and doing it at a cost we can afford. We will examine what a good health care system should deliver, a “map” to determine if the path we’re on is moving us towards a better health care system, one that includes affordable and available care, but has a broader goal of improving health. Our conference will bring together critical thinkers in health and health care to identify the barriers to improving health and how we can address them. It will deliver pertinent information to help us understand Oregon’s health transformation process, and where the community’s voice is needed to move that process forward. Our vision – that only by working together can we create a system for all Oregonians that results in better health care and health. During our 2019 Conference we will: Present a framework we can use to improve our health care system Offer updates on federal and state health policy. Identify the priority areas for action to improve health and provide better care. Create powerful health caucuses that come from the community instead of a political party. Speakers include: Dr. Camara Jones, MD, MPH, PhD - Morehouse School of Medicine (coined the phrase Social Determinants of Equity) Dr. Frank Franklin, MD, JD - Multnomah County Health Department And many more health advocates, professionals and you!
