Webinar: Partnering to Promote Health Equity for Adolescents

May 25, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

Adolescents in the U.S. are an increasingly diverse population and, as a result, are facing significant healthcare inequities. Given the economic burden of health disparities and premature death – over $1.24 trillion in direct and indirect costs between 2003 and 20061 – adolescence is a critical time period to arm youth with appropriate health information and ensure they have an opportunity to grow up in healthy and safe communities. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act lays a foundation for the U.S. to eliminate health disparities by expanding access to coverage and improving community prevention programs, as well as through specific provisions targeting racial and ethnic health disparities. To explore these and other opportunities to achieve health equity for adolescents, NIHCM is convened stakeholders to discuss how health plans and health plan foundations can provide the education, tools and resources necessary for adolescents to lead long and healthy lives.
