More about the series
Alarming disparities within the COVID-19 pandemic — such as higher hospitalizations and death rates among African Americans — are sadly predictable and highlight the urgent need to address the root causes of health inequities. APHA is hosting this webinar series to give an in-depth look at racism as a driving force of the social determinants of health and equity.
This series is exploring efforts to address systems, policies and practices designed to limit and shape opportunities for people of color. Our presenters are highlighting collective and individual actions we can take to advance racial equity and justice.
