About the Session

Depression is a major cause of morbidity worldwide; there are known disparities in access, quality and outcomes of care. Research shows that African Americans and Hispanics consistently suffer from health and healthcare disparities and are underrepresented in research. Quality Improvement programs for depression and a community-based approach can help us begin mitigating those disparities. During this session, experts will share how strategies can help us face healthcare inequities and support our work to ensure a high quality of life for everyone living with serious illness.
