If the program is US based only, I would add that here…… ILEAD is open to all disciplines of healthcare leaders in the United States…

Investing in health equity is essential to improve health care outcomes. According to TJC, it must be prioritized in the same manner as other crucial quality and patient safety initiatives – by understanding the root causes and implementing targeted standards to increase access to equitable, person-centered and high-quality health care. ILEAD will empower individuals with the knowledge and strategies they need to address health care inequities, disparities and social determinants of health within their patient population.

“The Love Leadership Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which grew out of my belief that health care leaders from all backgrounds should care for those they serve and foster an environment of belonging and inclusivity,” said Dr. Love. “These leaders are in a unique position to influence and inspire others, as well as play a critical role in advancing health care equity.”
