Building Trust in an Age of Disruption: ABIM Foundation Building Trust Initiative

Polls show that trust in the U.S. health care system is eroding. The current COVID-19 pandemic, economic recession and increased activism around racial injustice further underscores the importance of fostering strong community partnerships to improve health. ACHP has joined ABIM Foundation’s multi-stakeholder Building Trust initiative to elevate the importance of trust as an essential organizing principle to guide operations and improvements in health care. Join us for a panel discussion featuring ACHP member leaders actively working together with community leaders to promote health and health equity. Moderated by ABIM Foundation’s Daniel Wolfson, lead for the Building Trust Initiative.
