What you will learn:

Racism and Health: Utilizing Antiracism Strategies to Foster Health Equity helps teams of health professionals uncover the trauma of racism and its impact on health outcomes, including:
  • Understanding racism, racialized health disparities, and their social, historical, and political causes
  • Recognizing racism as a fundamental cause of health disparities and exploring the pathways that connect racism to poor health outcomes
  • Exploring the core constructs of Critical Race Theory (CRT)
  • Applying principles of CRT and antiracism to health research and practice in order to learn ways we can actively mitigate the impact of racism on health outcomes
This workshop is unique for three reasons:
  1. We model inclusive conversations so that information and ideas flow freely, rather than the traditional top-down educational model.
  2. We engage participants using culturally relevant material. Stats come to life through real-world stories and perspectives.
  3. Each instructor is a public health professional with our own passions and personality. We bring our whole selves to the workshop and invite participants to do the same.
