Complex Needs Through a Health Equity Lens: What Can Philanthropy Actually Do?

Thursday, December 3, 2020, 2:00 p.m. Eastern

Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging

The health and well-being of those who have faced a lifetime of structural racism are impacted much more strongly than other groups, especially as they age; for example, Black older people are dying from COVID-19 at 3.6 times the rate of older whites. Philanthropy has responded to many immediate needs, but inequities will continue if the system of discrimination in the social determinants of health does not change. Strong philanthropic investment at the systems level will be required if we are to see fundamental changes. Speakers include Carly Hare of Change Philanthropy and Kathryn Lawler of Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement.
