Community Involvement and JEDI in Focus at ACU’s 2024 Conference

ACU’s 2024 Conference theme, Envisioning a More Equitable Future: Advancing Stakeholder-Centered Innovation, highlights the importance of engaging patients, staff, communities, and partners in ways that advance justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion to provide more accessible and equitable care for all.

In less than one month, we’ll gather in Washington, D.C. to explore effective strategies for doing just that in 20+ CME-accredited sessions, Pre-Conference trainings, keynotes from federal and public health leaders, roundtable discussions, a dedicated Hill Day, and more.

Learn about a few of these exciting sessions below, explore further sessions, and join us on Aug. 4-7 for engaging learning and networking opportunities as we explore innovative approaches to advance health equity for medically underserved communities.
