Racism works at many levels of societal structure as a driving force for health inequities by shaping the social determinants of health including housing, employment and education. Sponsored by the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE), this webinar will engage voices from various areas of health professions to explore how racism has operated historically to create and maintain health inequities among women, men and children of color. Objectives include:
- Explore racism as a trigger of stress and physiological changes impacting health.
- Discuss ways that racism affects reproductive health in women of color resulting in disproportionate maternal and infant mortality.
- Explore the unique ways that racism impacts the health of Black Men.
- Identify the impact of racism on the developmental health of children of color.
