Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, Pfizer’s chief medical officer, and Rosanna Durruthy, Cigna’s chief diversity officer, and Dr. Gayatri Devi, President of the American Medical Women’s Association and the National Council on Women’s Health will share their extensive knowledge and viewpoints on this subject. Opening remarks will be given by Amy Schulman, EVP and General Counsel at Pfizer.

As we personally experience our US healthcare system, we can see examples of inequitable healthcare access- disparities in diagnostics and treatment from urban to suburban populations, across gender and race as well as inconsistency in attention to targeted R&D and more. Though some of this is shifting with Healthcare Reform, there is still plenty of discussion and dialog as we face the continued pressures from the cost of healthcare. These challenges are not going away; it is incumbent on all of us to better understand these issues as we take personal accountability for our own healthcare going forward.

Join this esteemed panel of experts to hear their perspective on these challenges and solutions. Learn about the role of industry to educate and build awareness around these issues. Hear how health insurers are addressing these disparities. This is an expanding healthcare business track and important to understand .
