Recorded: October 13, 2020

You can still view the timely conversation with Dr. David Satcher, the 16th Surgeon General of the United States and Former Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, led by Rob Bisceglie, our CEO, about the leadership needed to truly achieve health equity and combat today’s urgent threats to children’s physical, mental and emotional health and well-being.

Dr. Satcher’s insights are gleaned from a career spanning fifty years and revealed in his new book, My Quest for Health Equity: Notes on Learning While Leading.

In spite of—or perhaps because of—a childhood unjustly lacking in quality healthcare and opportunity, Dr. Satcher committed his life to overcoming health inequities. His lessons of leadership come from his days in college as a young civil rights activist listening to Martin Luther King, Jr. speak and joining the Great March on Washington, to revitalizing struggling hospital systems and becoming the Surgeon General of the United States, to founding Action for Healthy Kids and the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at the Morehouse School of Medicine.

In this webinar, Dr. Satcher discusses:

  • The most pressing health problems facing youth and the dire consequences of ignoring them
  • The leadership necessary to eliminate health disparities
  • His perspective as an early civil rights activist on tackling systemic racial injustice today
  • Leadership that moves the needle rather than maintains the status quo

If you are—or aspire to be—a leader who desires to effect lasting change, you don’t want to miss this discussion with one of the most widely respected health leaders of our time.
