Video Summary
The webinar was hosted by the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) and focused on centering equity in crisis preparedness and response. The webinar discussed the importance of equity in emergency situations and showcased examples from organizations that have implemented strategies to prioritize equity. The organizations highlighted in the webinar included Angel Kids Pediatrics, Boston Community Pediatrics, Los Angeles LGBT Center, AltaMed, East Hawaii IPA, Grady Health System, The Wellness and Equity Alliance of Texas, Southern Nevada Health District, and Cook County Health. These organizations implemented various strategies such as social determinants of health assessments, language services, culturally sensitive materials, staff support and engagement, partnerships with community organizations, and data collection on sexual orientation and gender identity. The webinar emphasized the need to integrate equity into crisis operations and decision-making, prioritize personal equity, and elevate partner and community demands. It also highlighted the challenges faced by these organizations, including regulatory restrictions, limited funding, and the lack of representation of marginalized communities in leadership positions. The webinar concluded by encouraging advocacy and education in equity-centered emergency response, and reminded participants to complete the post-evaluation for CME credit. The Centering Equity in Crisis Preparedness and Response Guide, which provides more detailed information and tools, is set to be released soon.
