Each year, the Health Equity Summit brings together healthcare leaders and workers, employers, social service agencies, grass roots groups, and citizen advocates to discuss tackling racial disparities in healthcare and finding equitable solutions to help those who have been historically disenfranchised.

The featured keynote speaker is Kemp Boyd, a coach, pastor, and Executive Director of Love Akron. Kemp Boyd is a community leader who has forged relationships throughout Akron, connecting various faith, civic, and non-profit organizations to create meaningful change in our community.
