Conference to End Health Disparities
Getting Our Fair SHARE: 2023 Conference to End Health Disparities is a two-day  conference, in-person and livestreamed, dedicated to finding solutions, and taking bold action to improve healthcare experiences and outcomes in every community. This year, the conference will take place at the Marriott Downtown in New York City on Wednesday, June 21 and Thursday, June 22 from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. This is the third year of our conference that brings together patients, patient advocates, medical professionals, and corporate and government representatives.

Day One will feature The Research and Patient Navigation Symposium where experts present key findings from recent SHARE studies: TNBC and Black Women: Exploring Perspectives, Needs and Experiences, and An Unheard Majority: How Older Women Experience Breast Cancer Diagnosis. The afternoon will move the work of the 2023 Patient Navigation Workstream forward into action.

Day Two of Getting Our Fair SHARE, is where we explore key topics and solutions through expert speakers from each community (Black, Latina, AAPI, White and other identities). Participants will share perspectives and wrestle with next steps.

Getting Our Fair SHARE goals include:
- Convene people who can take steps to end health disparities.
- Build a broad understanding of health equity issues faced by groups other than your own.
- Work on key health disparity solutions relevant to each racial/ethnic/identity group.
- Amplify the voice of the patient to those who can have the most impact on ending health disparities.
History of Getting Our Fair Share:
Getting Our Fair SHARE was launched in 2021 with the goal of moving health equity from talk to action. SHARE’s long commitment to under-resourced communities, and patients who face language barriers compelled us to use our experience and expertise to make a difference. At the first conference SHARE challenged participants to identify one big idea to end health disparities. Two of the four breakout sessions chose patient navigation, which became the focus of the conference workstreams in 2022 and 2023. The work of the patient navigation workstream, led by nationally recognized leaders in the field, continues on day one at the 2023 conference.

Our 30-year history of serving the Spanish-speaking community through LatinaSHARE, and more than a decade of outreach and programming for Black people positions SHARE to play a major role in ending health disparities. Our newest program for Chinese-speaking communities increases the knowledge and capacity we are able to draw on for the conference.
