Duke University School of Nursing, Harriet Cook Carter Lecture

The 60th annual Harriet Cook Carter Lecture will discuss, “The costs of health Inequities” on Wednesday, February 22.

Health inequities now cost the U.S. health care system about $320 billion and if not addressed by 2040, their cost is projected to reach an unsustainable $1 trillion. Join Dean Guilamo-Ramos for a fascinating discussion about the causes and possible solutions for health inequities with special guest experts from Deloitte’s Center for Health Solutions and Health Equity Institute. Topics will include the role of nursing in addressing health inequities and how new regulations, financing models and technology can help expand health care access and reduce costs. The free, virtual event will take place from 10-11:30 AM. Please see the Duke University Web site for speakers and registration information.
