Deputy Director, Division of Public Health, Delaware Health and Social Services.</li></ul><p>Our overall health is strongly influenced by where we live, learn, work, play and pray. It is also heavily influenced by your income level, education, and health care services. Our culture, language, political and religious beliefs, social norms and attitudes, and the rates of poverty, crime, and violence also affect our health. Society can achieve greater health equity as its environmental, social, and economic conditions improve. </p><p>Health inequities are historically entrenched and pervasive, but they are not insurmountable. We can be most effective by transforming our collective thinking from a perspective focused on treatment of the individual, to one that focuses on prevention, health, and wellness of the broader population. The focus of this session is to raise awareness that structural and systemic racism is the fundamental cause of health inequities, instilled in policy/resource allocations, and perpetuates health inequities. We will highlight a call to action for all of us to make fundamental shifts in <a href="https://www.bidenschool.udel.edu/ccrs/research/Health%20Policy%20Research/recent-publications-presentations/briefs">our approaches</a>.</p><p>Please see the <a href="https://www.eventbrite.com/e/racial-justice-through-collaborative-programs-and-projects-tickets-120223667225">Racial Justice Speaker Series</a> listed on Eventbrite.</p>11/12/2020 9:00:00 PM11/12/2020 10:00:00 PMFalse
