Achieving Health Equity: Tools for a National Campaign Against Racism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

APHA President Camara Jones will present a framework for understanding racism on three levels: institutionalized, personally mediated, and internalized. This framework is useful for understanding the basis for race-associated differences in health, as well as designing effective interventions to eliminate those differences and engaging in a national conversation. This session will review the relationship between the 3 levels of racism and may guide our thinking about how to intervene to mitigate the impacts of racism on health.
