American Heart Association: How prosperity can bridge health equity gaps

Season 1, Ep. 53

When Denise Bradley-Tyson’s husband - former Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard J Tyson - passed away, she took on his work to bridge health equity gaps. Working with the American Heart Association, she’s helped drive the creation of a special fund that provides grants and low interest loans to social entrepreneurs and not-for-profits, ensuring both the funding and technical expertise needed to help new projects grow. She’ll explain how health access gaps can be bridged through entrepreneurship, prosperity, grassroots efforts - and people who lead with their hearts.
