Structural racism globally creates disparate health outcomes in the U.S. and globally. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, communities of color experience higher rates of illness and mortality across a wide range of health conditions than other groups.
Please join the O’Neill Institute and the Racial Justice Institute for a timely discussion on what is needed to drive positive change and momentum towards health equity. The speakers will explore the various structures that create and promote health inequities and new systems to replace them. They will also address a robust multidisciplinary approach that would improve health outcomes for all. In-person spots are limited.
