Dr. Gary Puckrein, NMQF President and CEO, to Address “Transforming Healthcare in the Age of Pandemics: Can Health Equity Be Achieved?” in the Opening Keynote of the ACU Virtual Conference

The ACU is excited to announce the opening keynote speaker of our upcoming Virtual Conference: Dr. Gary A. Puckrein, President and CEO of the National Minority Quality Forum (NMQF). A celebrated health equity leader, he led the NMQF in launching the National Health Index in 1998, creating a centralized database linking vital statistics, demographics, and other data to create a portrait of health statuses—and disparities—across communities nationwide. Puckrein will lend his unique perspective to a keynote address on how clinicians, administrators, and advocates can work for health equity even in the midst of crises like COVID-19. Register now for this exciting presentation headlining our CME-accredited conference featuring 20 workshops, general sessions, and keynotes on emerging issues and innovative practices in health care for underserved populations from Sept. 14-18.
