Health Equity Lecture Series: Racism & Health Equity

Health Equity Lecture Series: Racism & Health Equity

Public health professionals hold power. As an educational institution, the UW School of Public Health hopes to train and develop knowledge among the next generation that contributes to better health outcomes. But at what cost? Join us for our second Health Equity Lecture, wherein a panel of public health leaders examines the systems of power through which we deliver public health — and the drive to change it.

Health equity exists when conditions that allow each person to achieve their full health potential are realized. This lecture is part of a series of conversations about how we can work more effectively with communities, partner organizations and each other to bring about positive change and uphold an anti-racist, inclusive environment by eliminating social, economic and other barriers.
