3rd Annual Anne Berry Bonnyman Symposium
In 2015, the infant mortality rate was more than twice as high among blacks than among white non-Hispanics. What contributes to this and other health disparities, and what can we do about it? Explore these issues at this year’s symposium, and develop specific ways we can create positive change in our community.
Learn from expert speakers and preachers about the inequities that people of color face in accessing health care and in receiving quality care in a complex health care system. Explore the issues in discussion groups, and develop concrete steps that people of faith can take to create positive change. The event's activities span over two days.
