County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health are excited to co-produce Advancing Racial Equity, a two-part webinar series on May 18th and June 15th. This series has been crafted for community health practitioners, residents, and decision makers positioning themselves to address racial inequities in their communities.
Centuries of structural racism, reflected in local, state and national policy, have resulted in stark differences in health outcomes by race.
We contend that racial equity can only be achieved when differences in health outcomes no longer exist among racial and ethnic groups. Therefore, we are committed to naming racism as a contributing factor to poor health outcomes and equipping our audiences with resources and tools to advance racial equity. This two-part series will feature national and community leaders who share that vision and commitment. Each webinar will be followed immediately with a discussion group where participants will engage in deeper exploration of key issues and be invited to share their local racial equity strategies. A customized resource guide for each webinar will be emailed to all registrants.
Here is a preview of the series content.
Be sure to register for each webinar in the series and plan to join the discussion groups afterward. Note: The discussion group connection information will be shared during the webinar.
County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health are units within the University of Wisconsin Population Health institute where we strive to accelerate capacity to create equitable conditions for everyone to be healthy by advancing knowledge, practice, policy and system change across sectors.
