400 Years of Inequality: Achieving Redemption, Reconciliation, and Equity Today
Mon 9/23/2019 8:30AM - 4:00PM
William Pitt Union

As this nation marks 400 hundred years of inequality since 1619 when the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown, nationally prominent scholars and community activists join in a one-day symposium examining this American legacy. How does the racial and social oppression forced upon enslaved Africans and their descendants translate to racial inequities? And what are the remedies, successful interventions, and steps necessary for achieving equity today

About the CHE Journal Club

CHE Journal Club word cloud 2014

The Center for Health Equity hosts a monthly journal club meeting to facilitate dialogue about health equity among faculty, students, staff, and community members. We hope to spark an intellectually, enriching discussion regarding ways to research a problem or intervene to contribute to the solution.

While housed in BCHS, the journal club is open to faculty, students, staff, and community members who are interested in health equity from Pitt Public Health and beyond. Journal club members will take turns in choosing a journal article they find particularly interesting and that can stimulate discussion. Manuscripts are also discussed and feedback is provided to the authors. Faculty-student, staff-student, faculty-staff, community-faculty, and community-staff facilitator teams are encouraged. If you have questions or want to volunteer to facilitate a meeting of the CHE Journal Club, contact Patricia Documét.

Pittsburgh, PA

What is Take a Health Professional to the People Day?

Take a Health Professional to the People Day (TADay) is the University of Pittsburgh Center for Health Equity's (CHE) health promotion and disease prevention initiative in partnership with African American-owned and -operated barbershops in several Pittsburgh communities. TADay takes place in April in recognition of National Minority Health Month.

Date & Location of TADay

Friday, April 20, 2018, at 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at the following locations:
  • Bat's Barber Shop in East Liberty
  • Big Tom's Barber Shop in the Hill District
  • Willie Tee's Barber Shop in Homewood
  • The Natural Choice in Oakland
  • dWade's Barber Shop in Homewood

Why TADay is Important

On average, African Americans (i.e., Black Americans} have higher incidence and mortality rates for many preventable and chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Multiple strategies are needed to address health inequities to improve the health status of African Americans.

What happens on TADay?

Health professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, nutritionists, health science students, etc.), public health educators, and health organizations volunteer their time to provide screening services and health education in the barbershops. Referrals are made for customers that need additional follow-up care.

How TADay can benefit you

TADay provides a community outreach and training opportunity for health professionals, students, and staff of community organizations to gain hands-on experience working in a trusted venue-the African American barbershop. You can gain valuable insight about the concerns and health care needs of the community to better inform the quality of your care.

How to participate in TADay

TADay registration will open soon. Additional Information will be posted on the CHE website at www.healthequity.pitt.edu
