How Can Networks Help Us Understand & Solve Health Inequity?
In this VNL Network Leader webinar, Bria Thomas re-introduces the concept of health equity and then demonstrates how network and systems mapping can be used to demonstrate linkages in the causes of inequity. We follow with a discussion led by Dr. Rose Hardy and Dr. Amanda Beacom, two VNL Network Scientists. They discuss and explore how network science and analysis can serve communities to achieve greater health equity.
