Public health is — and always has been — central to racial justice work. 

Racism as a Public Health Crisis

Thursday, April 22 at 3 pm ET

Join us as we discuss the connections between racism and public health outcomes, how to implement public health practices to effectively identify and address racial injustice in our communities, and community engagement and public policy strategies to advance racial equity through a public health lens.
