Join your colleagues from across the Catholic health ministry to watch the 20-minute film, Toxic, which shows a "day in the life" of a Black woman as she navigates the myriad stressors of a typical day and their effect on her pregnancy and her family. This compelling film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q and A.
As a part of Minority Health Month and the We Are Called, Confronting Racism to Achieve Health Equity pledge, this event seeks to heighten awareness of the everyday biases, prejudice and racism experienced by communities of color. The initiative will help the ministry take coordinated action with committed partners to truly dismantle systemic racism and create a society where all can flourish.
Putting our own houses in order is one commitment in the pledge. Through this short film, we hope to create a conversation around how biases can impact patient care as well as our personal interactions.
