At 3M Health Care, we work toward health equity and access by addressing healthcare disparities for minority and marginalized populations around the world. We aim to raise awareness and match 3Mers’ capabilities and competencies to the needs of community-based organizations (CBOs).
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations, Sustainable Development Goals affirm: Health equity and access are critical issues and social determinants of health (SDoH) play an important role in addressing these topics.
To help employees gain a greater understanding of social determinants of health, 3M Health Care, in collaboration with Employee Resource Networks, recently hosted an internal event to discuss the link between structural racism and SDoH with 3M employees. Victor Miranda, M.D., former director of clinical operations and compliance at 3M Health Care, interviewed three 3M HIS experts who shared their insights. The conversation was extremely enlightening, so we wanted to share it with our readers, as we all work to listen, understand and work toward achieving health equity and access.
Below are a few highlights from our panel of experts:
