Racism: The Ultimate Underlying Condition Webinar

Posted by on June 8th, 2020 Posted in: Education and Outreach, Public Health


The American Public Health Association is hosting a four-part webinar series to give an in-depth look at racism as a driving force of the social determinants of health and equity. The series will explore efforts to address systems, policies and practices designed to limit and shape opportunities for people of color. The presenters will highlight collective and individual actions we can take to advance racial equity and justice.

The first webinar in the series, Racism: the Ultimate Underlying Condition, will be held on Tuesday, June 9, 2-3:30 EDT.

  • identify the multiple levels on which racism operates;
  • describe the physiological impacts of racism and discrimination on health; and
  • explore the principles for and barriers to achieving health equity.
