This April 25, 2011, Today’s Topics in Health Disparities webcast examines the new Department of Health and Human Services’ Action Plan to Reduce Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities.

The program addresses the contents of the strategy and its timeline for implementation as well as its implications for providers. The panelists also discuss how the new strategy relates to other recently released HHS strategies including the National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care, the National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy, the Healthy People 2020 initiative and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States.
