LEAD: Racism Is a Public Health Crisis
May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
LEAD, Leading Equity And Diversity, is a series of conversations where attendees have the opportunity to hear from a diverse group of guests who lead and/or support DEI and social justice initiatives. This LEAD conversation will address how racism is a public health crisis.
COVID-19 and its disproportionate impact on communities of color have unearthed the deep roots of inequity that exist in the structures of our society, including our health system. Speakers will discuss racism and its effects on health and health outcomes from their experiences and research, as well as the multifaceted causes of higher burdens of illness, injury, disability, or mortality experienced by communities of color. They will also offer ideas for anti-racist policies and solutions to address racial health disparities.
