2023 Triton Leaders Conference:
Building an Equitable Future in Health Care

Join us February 3-4, 2023 for a weekend of advocacy and empowerment, as we explore solutions to address disparities in health care.

Impacting quality of life and mortality rates, inequities in health care run deep in America and are inexorably tied to factors such as race, gender, geography and income. Our 2-day conference, Building an Equitable Future in Health Care, will feature experts working in the field who will help us identify and understand the complex underpinnings of existing inequities, while seeking to find potential solutions.

Ultimately, health care equity will be achieved when every individual has an equal opportunity to realize their full health potential, regardless of socially determined circumstances. As health care leaders and members of the UC San Diego community, we have an unique opportunity to help create that change.

Let's harness our diverse perspectives, talents and commitment in a collective effort to shape a more equitable future. Imagine what we can achieve together!

Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhuman.- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Each year, the Triton Leaders Conference brings together volunteers from across UC San Diego and around the world. Alumni, students, staff, faculty and community leaders alike have the opportunity to gather as Tritons, connect with fellow attendees, explore campus priorities, learn, share and grow.

The Conference was designed to inspire meaningful dialogue, create further understanding and empower our community to take action. Through research, teaching, learning and service, UC San Diego is committed to dismantling the structural and behavioral norms that perpetuate injustice and systemic inequality.
