Addressing Health Disparities: Clinical Insights on Race and Social Justice
In the context of the increased attention in the lay and medical press to structural racism in the aftermath of the recent high-profile deaths of African-Americans at the hands of the criminal justice system, this web series will examine the intersections of race and ethnicity, racism, sexual orientation, social justice and health to better understand the myriad ways these important factors lead to health care disparities in our communities.
Hosted by renowned health care leaders at Harvard Medical School, this series will feature experts, academics and advocates to offer clinical and actionable insights on race and social justice issues. We hope you will join us for these difficult but necessary conversations.
