Disparities Solutions Center Speaker Series

Tosan O. Boyo, MPH, FACHE
Chief Operating Officer, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital

Tuesday, May 14th
9:00am – 10:00am
Haber Conference Room*
(Blake Building, 1st Floor)
Massachusetts General Hospital

Please RSVP here.

To eliminate disparities in significant and sustainable ways, we must transition equity from a lofty aspirational concept to a strategic priority with tactics physicians and staff utilize in daily operations. It is critical our systems reflect our values, our workforce reflect our patients, and that we address biases and processes that contribute to poor outcomes and inequities. From Support Services through Trauma Care and the C-Suite, every department has a role to play in ensuring equity.

In this DSC Speaker Series event, Tosan O. Boyo, MPH, FACHE, will discuss the journey at Zuckerberg San Francisco General to develop and deploy an enterprise-wide equity strategy, including: understanding the “why,” understanding the population, assessing disparities across the system, establishing a baseline of the organization’s commitment, and developing the workforce.

*Haber Conference Room has limited seats. Please arrive early to secure your seat.
