More about the series

Alarming disparities within the COVID-19 pandemic — such as higher hospitalizations and death rates among Black, Latino and Native communities — are sadly predictable and highlight the urgent need to address the root causes of health inequities. APHA hosted this webinar series to give an in-depth look at racism as a driving force of the social determinants of health and equity.

This series explores efforts to address systems, policies and practices designed to limit and shape opportunities for people of color. Our presenters highlight collective and individual actions we can take to advance racial equity and justice.

Check out other APHA racism and health resources, including our popular book, Racism: Science & Tools for the Public Health Professional.

We encourage you to view webinars from the 2015 series The Impact of Racism on the Health and Well-Being of the Nation in advance of the 2020 webinar series.
