University of Minnesota Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility presents:


Addressing Racial Inequities in Health Outcomes During COVID and Beyond 

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 | 1-2p CT / 2-3p ET

Structural inequalities between Black and White Americans have always had devastating impacts, and these disparate health outcomes have become even more apparent in the COVID-19 era. In this webinar, panelists will discuss the impact of structural racism on overall health outcomes of Black Americans, the framing of police brutality against Black Americans as a public health crisis, how the record of systemic racial injustice in the United States relates to the country's human rights law obligations, racial and economic disparities that exist outside of the U.S., and strategies for addressing gaps on a national and international level to guarantee the right to health in a post-COVID world.

This webinar is hosted by the University of Minnesota Human Rights Lab, in collaboration with the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility, as a space for scholars, practitioners, researchers, and advocates to explore these and related questions through it's virtual series, Envisioning the Future: Advancing human rights in a time of crisis. The webinar is also co-sponsored by the Institute for Global Studies.
