PAC3 is committed to facilitating improvements in acute care cardiology outcomes in order to eliminate disparities due to race, ethnicity, gender, geography, or socioeconomic status.


Is there an event or program relating to diversity, equity and inclusion that you would like to promote?


The IDHEA committee would like to help promote national events, programs, and educational and funding opportunities.  The goal is to educate our members about some aspect of health equity or disparity and to improve understanding of diverse patient cultures.  We respectfully request that religious events are not submitted, though health equity events sponsored by religious organizations will be accepted and opportunities for cultural education are encouraged.

These will be highlighted on our website, monthly newsletters, Twitter, and SharePoint site.

Thank you for your support!

Upcoming Events/Opportunities

Review of Federal Policies that Contribute to Racial and Ethnic Health Inequalities, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

 A new National Academies committee will be appointed to conduct an analysis of federal policies (e.g., social, economic, environmental) that contribute to preventable and unfair differences in health status and outcomes experienced by all U.S. racial and ethnic minority populations. The committee will write a report with conclusions and recommendations that identify the most effective or promising approaches to policy change with the goal of furthering racial and ethnic health equity.
At the July 26 meeting from approximately 11:00am-12:00pm ET, the committee welcomes input on federal policies that contribute to racial and ethnic health inequalities and potential solutions.
