Do you trust the healthcare system to provide YOU with the highest quality of care when you’re in need?

This is a crucial question as medical mistrust is associated with negative health outcomes.

#COVID-19 has illuminated the deep #inequities in #healthcare access and #health outcomes by #race, #gender, #socio-economic status, and place. The medical mistrust experienced by many people of color, particularly among #Black and #Latino/a/x communities, creates enormous barriers.

Join the Conversation: "Understanding and Addressing Medical Mistrust" on Monday, November 30th and Monday, December 7th for a live, virtual two-part panel conversation where experts will explore medical mistrust past, present, and future.

You’ll learn about the origins of medical mistrust, the many ways it persists today, and the multifaceted approaches needed to remedy. You will come away with actions from small to big, individual to institutional to help shape a practical path forward toward equity and trust.

The clock is ticking, but there's still time to register for the 11th Annual International Conference on Stigma, which will be held from Monday, November 16, 2020 to Friday November 20, 2020 as a Virtual Howard University Event.

The stigma associated with health conditions such as HIV infection is a major public health problem that impedes treatment and prevention efforts. The International Conference on Stigma will bring together researchers, community, academia, policy makers, faith leaders and youth to discuss the impact of health-related stigma and ongoing research on interventions to eliminate stigma. The conference will include plenary sessions and advocacy leadership training sessions; scientific poster presentations; networking opportunities; and art, with an emphasis on intersectionality of stigma and support for next generation of young researchers and advocates combating stigma.
