About this Event

In recent years, there has been growing evidence and research to indicate that social factors including income level, education level, ethnicity and gender drive health outcomes. Net Impact Chicago will host a panel to educate around the mechanisms involved in health disparities and what concrete solutions organizations are taking to help improve the health of the individual and broader populations. Come join our panel to learn more and ask questions around this important topic.
