Next installment of CMA’s Virtual Grand Rounds to discuss Black health and health equities in California

April 09, 2024

The average Californian lives to age 81, but the average Black Californian only lives to age 75. How can we dismantle the persistent health equities among Black Californians?

Join us for the next installment of CMA’s Virtual Grand Rounds — Black Health in California: Moving Toward Equity — on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at 12 p.m., to hear about some groundbreaking work in engaging communities to be part of developing a statewide strategic approach to improving Black health.

Rhonda Smith, MBA, Executive Director at the California Black Health Network, will join us to discuss root causes of the disparities and dispel commonly held misconceptions about Black health beliefs and behaviors.

And as always, we will hear from California State Epidemiologist Erica Pan, M.D., MPH,  who will review the current status of COVID-19, influenza and other respiratory viruses.

The free one-hour webinar is open to all interested parties.   

Virtual Grand Rounds: Emerging Public Health Issues is a free and monthly series providing the latest patient management news and resources. The effort is a partnership between CMA and the California Health and Human Services Agency, with the California Academy of Physician Assistants and the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California.

If you are unable to attend the live event, it will be available for on-demand playback at cmadocs.org/grandrounds.
