Bold Goal Discussion: In the Wake of COVID-19

Increased Focus on Social Determinants May Lead to a More Sustainable and Equitable Health Care System

Humana is hosting two live panel discussions with dynamic industry leaders from across the country drawing on nearly a decade of critical insights and data, and sharing how these learnings will shape the future of healthcare. Was one silver lining of 2020 the main-stream visibility of health-related social needs that will ultimately propel us into a health system that is more equitable and effective?

Coinciding with the release of our 2021 Bold Goal Progress Report, Humana will broadcast these two sessions via our Humana LinkedIn channel on May 18 and May 19. We hope you can join us.
