An update from URMC regarding its equity-based health care goals
One year ago, the Strong Hospital Ethics Committee wrote a public letter to leaders at the University of Rochester calling on the institution to better serve everyone in the community. From vaccine access to medical services, the committee was concerned about equity. This came after WXXI reported on URMC offering special access to vaccine clinics and executive health programs to donors and wealthy individuals.
A year later, we're joined by URMC staff and a member of the Ethics Committee, who discuss how they think the institution is doing in working toward its equity-based goals. Our guests:
- Adrienne Morgan, vice president for equity and inclusion at the University of Rochester Medical Center
- Wendy Parisi, director of the Health Equity Program Support Office at the University of Rochester Medical Center
- Margie Shaw, director of clinical ethics and member of the University of Rochester Medical Center Ethics Committee
