The panelists will discuss research identifying key issues that can lead to poor outcomes (e.g., access, affordability, and adherence), issues with existing programs that attempt to address disparities, and discuss the need for a multi-pronged approach that includes the involvement of multiple stakeholders--including payors, pharmaceutical manufacturers, prescribers, and pharmacies. Panelists will also explain the mission of the newly-formed non-profit organization Black Director's Health Equity Agenda (BDHEA): ensuring that every human being can achieve their full health potential.
