Healthcare and health remain unconscionably inequitable. This year, the disproportionate toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on those historically least well-served by our health system, has highlighted the pressing societal challenge of health disparities.

Beyond simply striving to do no harm, Learning Health Systems (LHSs) have the potential to serve as forces for justice in healthcare and health; indeed, they can be powerful drivers of diversity, equity, and inclusion. LHSs are anchored in multi-stakeholder consensus Core Values that explicitly incorporate principles such as inclusiveness, transparency, and accessibility. Their proximal goal is "to efficiently and equitably serve the learning needs of all participants, as well as the overall public good."

The October 2020 LHS Collaboratory will share lessons from health advocates working on the front lines to make healthcare and health more equitable. These thought leaders and do-ers will illuminate the transformative power of LHSs - and the diverse and inclusive communities of interest that are collaborating to realize them.
