All people have a fundamental right to high-quality, compassionate health care. Yet, significant health disparities have been documented for decades and reflect longstanding structural and systemic inequities rooted in racism and discrimination. Achieving health equity requires ensuring universal health care and access for all people, including those most disadvantaged by structural barriers, racism, and discrimination. Eliminating health disparities is key to improving our nation’s overall health, reducing health care costs, and moving towards a free and inclusive society for all. In this upcoming Schwartz Center Rounds, we will discuss health equity and the role we as health care providers play in ensuring that all people receive the best medical care we can provide. Please join us for our next Schwartz Center Rounds as we examine this important topic.

Consider adding a shout-outs section to your next team huddle or meeting. Build up team members’ professional esteem by acknowledging good work. Encourage the rest of the team to give their colleagues shout-outs. This can build a stronger team morale and encourage collaboration amongst the group.

Example of shout-outs to share with your team:
Great job on acting quickly and resolving XYZ issue!
I’ve noticed you put in extra work for this, I appreciate it.
