Amplifying Lived Experiences and Meaningful Collaborations To Improve Health Outcomes; A Diversity in Oncology Initiative in Boston


Diversity in Oncology is a first of its kind initiative to learn from and co-create solutions to address health inequities with three specific communities: the AAPI, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin. Bristol Myers Squibb in partnership with Gryt Health have been listening to the local leaders in these three communities to learn the barriers to accessing quality healthcare. Delving into real world examples, we will hear from community health leaders in Boston, MA on how complex and unique obstacles to care affect their communities. Leave this session with a better understanding of language, stigma and screening challenges to be able to take active roles in creating more inclusive and responsive experience for underserved humans.
