$0.00 Health equity is achieved when every person, regardless of race, place, or circumstance, has the opportunity to live their healthiest life. Some of the known barriers are referred to as Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) and are determined by the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, play and age. These barriers, driven by structural racism, discrimination and stigma, include poverty, lack of access to quality education, housing, good jobs and comprehensive, high quality health care. Communities that are overwhelmingly impacted by these obstacles are underserved, including communities of color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, women, and those who live in rural or frontier settings. This activity will define health equity, distinguish between equity, equality, and justice, discuss health equity and inequities, and identify individual strategies to promote health equity.

$0.00 This activity will review the prevalence of obesity in different populations and its role in the development of chronic disease. It will discuss the effects of bias, discrimination, and health disparities on the development and treatment of obesity. Importantly, it will educate participants about the benefits of a multi-modal collaborative treatment approach to mitigate contributing factors to obesity and address challenges in access to care that can influence obesity-related health outcomes in certain communities.

$0.00 This activity will review the current recommendations for screening and vaccination in both organ donors and organ recipients and will examine the current rationale and value of measuring COVID-19 antibody titers in light of possible low posttransplant sero-response and humoral response rates. Importantly, the current state of, and future implications for, transplantation in nonvaccinated patients will be discussed.

$0.00 Despite the large increase in the number of multi-organ transplants (MOTs) performed over the past few years, challenges still exist in this arena. Among these unresolved issues are a lack of standardized MOT eligibility criteria across institutions, regions and different organ combinations. Ethical issues have also arisen regarding equity in organ allocation amidst a limited organ supply, as many MOT candidates get priority allocation for nonprimary organs versus individuals requiring that organ as a single transplant; this prioritization may impact optimal recipient and graft survival as well. In this session, learn more about multi-organ allocation and its accompanying challenges, risks, benefits, and expected outcomes, as well as the limitations of MOT for potential recipients.

$0.00 In this activity, participants will review conventional rejection-monitoring parameters and will identify current and emerging acute-rejection biomarkers. A closer look at data — regarding such biomarkers as donor-derived cell-free DNA, gene expression profiles, mRNA transcripts, immune effector pathway molecules, cell subsets and chemokines — will provide clarity about their predictive accuracy and value in rejection monitoring, as well as their ability to improve outcomes through rapid identification of transplant-organ dysfunction.
