The panel discussion revolved around improving healthcare access and reducing health disparities. The speakers were leaders from organizations like the National Association Commute Health Centers, Highmark Health, Dell Medical School at the University of Texas, Zocalo Health, and Boston Children Health Center. They emphasized the importance of trust and representation within healthcare systems and the potential value of integrating innovative solutions like telehealth services in reaching more patients. They also acknowledged barriers such as health workforce shortages and mentioned efforts, such as partnering with community-based organizations and using data-informed strategies. The panelists expressed hope for improved health equity by 2050, envisioning a future where social, behavioral, and physical health have equal footing and services are more interconnected.
