A free online event to promote health equity.
August 24-26, 2020
Held in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter
Monday, August 24th - In the Beginning was the Word: Racism is rarely discussed in health communication, and yet it is an important determinant of health. This session examines the ways racism and health literacy interact to impact health equity.
Tuesday, August 25th: Anti-Racist Health Literacy in Action: This panel provides insight from the field, highlighting best practices and identifying key challenges in ensuring health promotion is anti-racist.
Wednesday, August 26th: Changing the Narrative: While the national discourse on health disparities shines a much-needed light on race-based health inequities, it also reinforces a racist narrative. This narrative must change. Learn how to be a part of that change at our final evening — a night of storytelling, narrative competency and rally for civic engagement.
