Starfield Summit II: Speaker Presentations

The second Starfield Summit, focused on expanding the role of primary care in achieving health equity, was held in Portland, OR on April 22-25, 2017. The Summit brought together a diverse and dynamic group of attendees to strengthen and expand existing work on achieving health equity – and tapped into the strength of current partnerships and created new coalitions to pave action-oriented paths toward achieving health equity and social accountability.

The Summit featured expert speakers in health equity from the perspective of their respective fields – highlighted by keynote speaker, Dr. David Williams, PhD, MPH, of the Harvard School of Public Health. IGNITE speakers launched discussions on four major themes over the course of two days: Social Determinants of Health; Vulnerable Populations; Economics & Policy; and Shifting the Paradigm of Social Accountability
