WHY: The COVID-19 pandemic has pulled back the curtain on health inequities in this country and, arguably has made the situation worse than ever as evidenced by the higher infection and death rates among specific populations. As a response, equity and inclusion have become hot topics of the 2020s, leading organizations large and small rushing to hire health equity officers. What will these officers do and how will these organizations achieve health equity? How are we going to move beyond these discussions toward real change? This work cannot happen in silos and Real Chemistry is focused on bringing together experts from across all industries to map out actionable solutions toward achieving real health equity in the United States.
