The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated health disparities and inequities globally and across the United States. It has never been more important to learn from exemplar leaders and organizations that have pioneered new models to advance health equity, access, and resilience in partnership with communities. For this panel, we have three such leaders—Reverend Bobby Baker (Christ Community Health Services), Kaakpema “KP” Yelpaala (InOn Health), and Isaac Holeman (Medic)—who will share their perspectives on the role that research and technology developments can play in achieving better health and well-being for all.
