Health Disparities Lecture at the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Grand Rounds of Pitt County Memorial Hospital
On Wednesday, July 22nd, I presented a lecture at the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Grand Rounds at Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville, North Carolina. I was invited by Dr. Daniel Moore -- Professor & Charman of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitaton. The audience consisted of residents and health professionals who worked primarily at PCMH.
The title of my lecture, "How To Solve and Eliminate Health Disparities," accomplished four major objectives:
- Define Health Disparities
- Evaluate Current Health Disparities Data
- Re-examine Health Disparities Data from a Cultural Perspective
- Provide Solutions to Solve and Eliminate Health Disparities
By the way, the audience asked a number of excellent, practical and clinically-relevant questions which I truly appreciated!
I want to thank again Dr. Daniel Moore for inviting me to give the lecture as well as Dr. Leonardo Villarosa for scheduling the date of the lecture. Finally, I want to thank all the professionals who took the time out of their very busy schedules to attend this lecture at 8:00am!
