The Racial and Ethnic Disparities: Keeping Current seminar series aims to disseminate the latest information on interventions, research findings, and health policy updates regarding efforts to reduce disparities. These discussion forums feature informative presentations from experts in the field as well as context, perspectives, and opinions from key healthcare stakeholders.

Please join us for a presentation by Efrén Flores, MD, on disparities in patient access to radiology. In this seminar Dr. Flores will present preliminary findings from of the Patient Engagement for Equity in Radiology (PEER) study, which is focused on understanding the socioeconomic factors that result in missed appointments, or “missed care opportunities,” in order to provide culturally sensitive health care solutions for underserved patients. The goal of the PEER project is to develop a predictive model to identify risk factors and offer personalized plans for radiology patients to improve connectivity to services and prevent missed care opportunities.

All Keeping Current Seminar series events are free and open to the public and members of local health care and research communities are encouraged to attend. Please RSVP to reserve your spot and visit the DSC website for more information.
