Ezike’s presentation, “Exploring Health Equity in Illinois: Discussing the Vision for the Future” will explore health equity, not only in definition but how equity looks in practice. She will also highlight the state’s health improvement plan to identify key issues and action steps to address health equity in Illinois as well as discuss the impacts of COVID-19 and health equity related to health care access, health disparities, and building trust in Illinois communities.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
