Confronting Racism in Healthcare
A Virtual Community Health Forum | September 1, 2020
Racist systems, policies, and attitudes embedded in the United States’ infrastructure have allowed racial inequalities and systems of power to persist over hundreds of years. Healthcare is no exception to this dynamic. People of color experience more illness, worse outcomes, and earlier death than their white counterparts. These facts can be traced back to both structural and implicit discrimination in the healthcare delivery system.
Join the KHC for a Community Health Forum on September 1 to learn more about the role of racism in the history, advancement, and future of healthcare delivery and how collective action between stakeholders can create an anti-racist healthcare system.
