Equity & Structural Racism: Challenges and Opportunities for Health Care

August 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and other movements have important implications for health and healthcare institutions that seek to advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and address Social Determinants of Health (SDH).

Informed by these movements, HealthBegins, AcademyHealth, and the Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center have each taken steps to address DEI and SDH in unique ways.  In this webinar, we’ll present key insights about how DEI and SDH work is done differently when it’s based in a framework that addresses structural racism and inequity. We’ll describe where health and healthcare institutions often get stuck. And we’ll discuss what we can all do to get “unstuck” — to ensure that SDH and diversity initiatives meaningfully advance structural justice and improve health.
