30 Years of Advancing Health Equity; The Heckler Report: A Force for Ending Health Disparities in America

Event Date: 04/27/2015 01:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

The Health Equity Summit is an observance of National Minority Health Month and the 30th anniversary of the landmark 1985 HHS Report of the Secretary’s Task Force on Black and Minority Health (Heckler Report), which was the first comprehensive study of the health status of racial and ethnic minorities conducted by the U.S. government and elevated minority health onto the national stage.

Summit speakers include:

  • HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell
  • Former HHS Secretary Margaret M. Heckler
  • 16th U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher
  • Deputy Assistant Secretary for Minority Health and Director of the HHS Office of Minority Health Dr. J. Nadine Gracia
  • Members of Congress and other distinguished speakers

The Health Equity Summit will highlight how the Heckler Report has served as a driving force for monumental changes in research, data, legislation, policy and programs to advance health equity at the national, state, tribal, territorial and local levels; progress towards closing the gap in health disparities – from the creation of the HHS Office of Minority Health in 1986 to the Affordable Care Act in 2010; and strategies for accelerating health equity for future generations.

The Health Equity Summit is part of a year-long commemoration, under the National Minority Health Month 2015 theme, “30 Years of Advancing Health Equity; The Heckler Report: A Force for Ending Health Disparities in America.”
