Health outcomes and health care utilization patterns of U.S. Emergency Departments vary disproportionately by race and we aim to examine the different aspects of how race influences the utilization and outcomes of emergency care. Join us for this year’s consensus conference – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Developing a research agenda for addressing Racism in Emergency Medicine – to support the development of a consensus-driven research agenda, research collaboration network, and dissemination plan for evidence-based practices related to the care of health disparity populations in emergency care settings.
