Addressing longstanding disparities: Reflections from this year’s Grantmakers in Health conference

As always, it was an inspiring and energizing event, and a great opportunity for our team to engage with the broader philanthropy community about breaking down systemic barriers to good health. Read this month’s blog for some reflections from D’Paul Nibber, senior policy and community engagement officer, about what stuck with him most and lessons he is bringing back to the rest of the Horizon team.
