Americans Reaching for Hope: The Imperative for Health Equity

Based on the critically acclaimed book, Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, best-selling author and business leader Sheryl WuDunn provides a detailed account of the epidemic of depression, unemployment, poverty and addiction that is plaguing America’s working class – and the government’s failure to address it. In this inspiring keynote, WuDunn uses personal stories to demonstrate how various policies and approaches can change things for the better – or worse. She provides an optimistic and practical pathway to achieving greater equity, easier access and better health for working class Americans. Known for her moving storytelling and incomparable insights into the events that shape our world, she will leave audiences inspired to drive change.
