Systemic Racism Webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a spotlight on the impact of systemic racism on the health of Black Americans. Long-standing social and economic inequities have contributed to multiple social determinants of health that increase the risk of getting or dying from COVID-19. In the United States, Black Americans are dying at 2.5 times the rate of white Americans, while facing barriers to testing, treatment, and options for prevention and self-protection. This webinar will discuss how systemic racism harms health, and how solutions-based approaches at the state and community level are making a difference.

Speakers will discuss:

  • How racism harms individual health and has contributed to a public health crisis in America and among Black Americans
  • A health plan’s comprehensive approach to reducing health disparities, from a state-wide perspective
  • Public health solutions from a network of more than 20 FQHCs and 70 community health organizations addressing the effects of the pandemic on the uninsured and frontline workers in New Orleans

draft agenda is available on our website.

1225 19th St. NW, Suite 710, Washington, DC 20036
