About the Session

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought numerous challenges and unprecedented peril to our nation, to the world and to the healthcare system. At the same time, healthcare leaders can seize the opportunity to use the lessons learned from these perils to build a brighter and healthier future. The approach to everything from care delivery and testing to mass vaccinations and emergency response care can teach lessons that will inform and improve healthcare for generations to come. During this session, Ruth Williams-Brinkley will discuss how healthcare leaders can move from peril to progress and perspective in light of the global pandemic as well as discuss racial injustices that continue to affect the country.  She will share from her experience leading at Kaiser Permanente in the Mid-Atlantic region as well as in the Northwest.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify strategies for making concrete progress during the second year of the pandemic and beyond.
  • Describe individual leadership strategies that can help build resilient leaders focused on inclusivity.
