Wellness Redefined for Marginalized Identities

Jessica Isom, MD, MPH

Does your organization acknowledge the impact that oppressive social, economic and cultural factors have on the wellbeing of your marginalized employees?

Wellbeing looks different for everyone and those possessing a marginalized identity are no exception.

As an extension of our THRIVEx series, we welcome you to join Virgin Pulse Science Advisory Board Member, Jessica Isom, MD, to explore how organizations can go beyond the traditional considerations of wellbeing to open up more unique opportunities for marginalized employees.

Racial Disparities in Health: Why Your Zip Code Matters More than Your Genetic Code

Dexter Shurney, MD, MBA, MPH, FACLM, DipABLM

Research and data are increasingly revealing COVID-19's disproportionate - and deadly - impact on racial and ethnic minority groups in America. Black, Latino and Indigenous people are not only contracting the virus at higher rates, they are dying at more than twice the rate of White or Asian Americans. There’s more to this inequity than our genetics, and it reaches far beyond COVID-19. Join us and Dr. Dexter Shurney, to learn:
  • How health is determined
  • Why one’s zip code is more important than their genetic code
  • How we can begin addressing social determinants of health in our own organizations
  • The epigenetic phenomenon and how lifestyle as medicine can help counteract the obesity and opioid epidemic for generations to come

Embedding Equity at the Institutional Level

Dr. Aletha Maybank, Chief Equity Officer American Medical Association (AMA)

Equity is critical to eliminating systemic racism, and it starts with the workplace

Diversity and inclusion, or D & I, is a hot topic right now and many organizations are seizing this moment to advance their initiatives. But, without the E - "Equity" - at the center, even the best D & I strategies will fail to build truly inclusive workplaces and employee experiences. Dr. Aletha Maybank, The American Medical Association's (AMA) first ever Chief Health Equity Officer, describes equity as "having the conditions, resources, opportunities and power to achieve optimal health" and is core to an employee's health and wellbeing.

As an extension of our THRIVEx series, we invite you to view this webinar replay with Dr. Maybank to learn how organizations like yours can embed equity and ensure that your entire workforce is empowered and enabled to attain optimal health.

How Your Population’s Health Is Impacted by Social Determinants Amidst COVID-19

Marin Hoffman, Virgin Pulse, Vice President, Clinical Services

The world is continuing to battle COVID-19 and racial injustice but what many don’t know is just how closely connected these two topics are. Racism is one of the biggest causes of health outcomes amongst racial or ethnic minorities. In fact, 60% of our overall health and wellbeing is defined by social determinants of health – conditions in which you are born, grow, work and live. In times like these, it’s important to acknowledge and understand the health disparities amongst your populations and the impact you can make as an employer.

The world has changed, and the reality is that the coronavirus pandemic has left many with an overall sense of loss in both their personal and professional lives – loss of a loved one, loss of security, loss of income or even loss of social connection. Whether big or small, loss is accompanied by grief, and takes a strong toll on mental health, but many of us are not equipped with the coping skills that grief or mental distress demands. Employees are being expected to maintain productivity, return to work and keep morale high, all while navigating an unprecedented sea of emotions. In this session, we’ll lean on our panel of clients to learn how to identify grief or loss, share best practices for combatting mental health and create a comprehensive toolkit for coping.
