Raising the Bar: On Racism, Health and Publication Standards

November 19, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Racism is a root cause of racial health inequities. Yet researchers and journals publish on racial health inequities without mentioning or examining racism. How do we raise this bar?

About this Webinar

Dr. Boyd will explore racism as a root cause of racial health inequities. Given this foundation, she will issue a challenge to researchers, journals, reviewers, and readers to engage racism within their analysis of racial health inequities.

What you’ll learn

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • List 2 concrete ways racism impacts health
  • Analyze racial disparities emerging during the US COVID19 pandemic and the racial disparities evidenced by disproportionate police violence, within the history of racism in the US
  • Propose new publication standards that engage racism as a root cause of racial health inequities
