Original Webinar Information

Reducing health disparities to improve life-saving donations and advance organ transplantation is a critical step in advancing equity within healthcare. Over the course of this discussion, we will explore the hidden barriers that exist in the transplant evaluation process that prevents communities of color from receiving access to appropriate medical care and transplantation. Our panelists will explore effective measures that transplant programs can take to increase the rate of transplants for racially diverse patients and improve healthcare equity.

  • Outline the existing hidden barriers that prevent communities of color from receiving medical care and access to transplantation.
  • List strategies to improve access and outcomes for historically marginalized patients.
  • Identify effective practices that transplant programs can implement to improve the transplant rate within communities of color.
  • Describe the ongoing effects of COVID and the subsequent impact the pandemic has had on the socio-economic status of racially diverse patients and their access to healthcare.
