Despite efforts by policy makers and health advocates, health inequity continues to be pervasive both globally and locally. Persons of lower socio-economic status, minoritized communities, and those who have experienced migration continue to suffer from poorer health outcomes than other groups.

Iowa City is no exception to this pattern. In this panel, we bring together individuals who work along the spectrum of care for disadvantaged groups to speak about their experiences while striving to improve health outcomes for all individuals in Iowa City.

There will be a Q&A after the presentations for the panel and audience members to discuss the issues, questions raised, and possible solutions.  Please note: If you wish to ask questions of the panel, you must view this event via Zoom at
