We Are Called Conversation Series - Conversation I: Confronting Racism by Achieving Health Equity

This opening conversation will discuss how the events of last year have changed the way health care organizations look at systemic racism as the root cause of health disparities. Two CHA members will discuss why raising awareness and understanding of systemic racism and how it manifests itself in medicine are critical first steps to ensure we are working on the right problems and with the right people. In other words, we need to understand whether we are just treating the symptoms (health disparities) without curing the disease (systemic racism). Attendees will be encouraged to share their stories and perspectives.
