We are thrilled to welcome our guest speaker, Nancy E. Norman, MD, MPH, Medical Director of Integration for the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership. She will be speaking with us about systems change and sharing examples of how this was done in her work to increase access to care for marginalized populations.  She will also be speaking directly to restructuring health disparities work to realign the focus on health equity and social justice.
