RSVP here for a link to the livestream of the Summit (12-3PM) and to sign up for the Virtual What Works Showcase (3:15-5PM).
From his first day in office, President Biden committed to a Covid-19 response that placed equity squarely at its center. Since that time, much progress has been made in a truly whole-of-society effort to protect, support and uplift the hardest-hit and highest-risk communities in the face of this unprecedented public health threat. In particular, the efforts of organizations and collaborations in communities across the country amounts to a historic proof of concept for how—when appropriately resourced and supported—inequities in health can be minimized and eliminated with thoughtfulness, intentionality, and innovation.
While there remains much to do in pursuit of Covid-19 equity—and beyond—the White House Summit on Covid-19 Equity and What Works Showcase on November 16, 2022 highlights interventions and approaches that have moved the needle on equitable Covid-19 outcomes, and showcases a path forward. This event will convene community organizations, equity leaders, government officials and philanthropic organizations in the sharing of best practices to light the way forward. Panel discussions (described below) will be live streamed, and followed by an in-person as well as a virtual showcase featuring community organizations from across the nation and their groundbreaking work on COVID-19 equity.
The White House is joined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in hosting this event.
