Tackling Structural Racism in Health – Health Affairs

October 3, 2023 @ 1:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Understanding and addressing the impact of structural racism on health is essential to building health equity.

The October 2023 issue of Health Affairs, “Tackling Structural Racism in Health,” builds on the groundbreaking work contained in our February 2022 theme issue, “Racism & Health.”

It deepens and extends the scholarship on the relationship between structural racism, health, and health care with new research and perspectives on the politics of racism and how it is ingrained in health research and society.

You are invited to join us on Tuesday, October 3, 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Eastern) for a virtual forum at which panels of distinguished authors and experts will present their work and engage in discussions on topics including “Politics and the Legacy of Racism“; “Use Of Race And Ethnicity Data“; “Documenting Racism“; and “Responses to Racism.”

ISDC2023 Plenary Speaker Arielle Deutsch, Research Scientist at Avera Health will discuss findings from the forthcoming Health Affairs (#1 health policy journal) research entitled “How Funding Policy Maintains Structural Inequity within Indigenous Community-based Organizations”
