Leaders from business, healthcare, public health, and communities will identify actions to capitalize on the attention COVID-19 has brought to health inequities and cardiometabolic health disparities.

“In pre-pandemic ‘normal,’ cardiovascular disease, despite being preventable, was the leading cause of death, and its burden was inequitable. COVID magnified the inequities.
