Resuscitation Health Equity
AHA Virtual Town Hall Webinars
The AHA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) volunteer taskforce presented four webinars that featured experts who explored and discussed both disparities and inequities in various aspects of resuscitation care. The DEI taskforce is part of the AHA Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science Subcommittee. Below are the webinar recordings and summaries of each speaker’s presentation.

The AHA is grateful for the support of the following organizations that collaborated with us on the webinars:
