We Need to Talk Series

ASU's College of Health Solutions hosts a series of panel discussions on timely and controversial topics in health. Each session brings together experts from health, medicine, business, policy and law to examine the medical, ethical and legal issues surrounding such topics as diversity in health care, medical cannabis, end-of-life decisions and medical mistakes. This year's six sessions include audience participation in a Q&A format, and each event is also broadcast as a live podcast.

The United States has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the developed world. African American women in particular are experiencing this statistic at much higher rates than other racial and ethnic groups. What can be done to reverse the course on this tragic  reality for so many women and families in the U.S.? How do health care delivery systems contribute to the problem? How can they be part of the solution? What is the role of policy? What are the roles of race, racism and bias?

Join the conversation as a panel of experts addresses these questions and more on the credibility of web-based health information. The event will include audience Q&A and will be recorded as a live podcast.
