Health Equity and the Role of Racism-Conscious Policymaking, in Collaboration with Health Affairs
A Conversation with Shekinah A. Fashaw-Walters, PhD, Raynard Washington, PhD, MPH, Ruqaiijah Yearby, JD, MPH, moderated by Atheendar Venkataramani, MD, PhD
Policy makers have focused on advancing health equity using race-neutral and race-conscious policy, but large racial disparities persist. An alternative approach is using racism-conscious policymaking. Join Penn LDI and Health Affairs for a virtual seminar, offered in connection with Health Affairs’ October issue on structural racism, that will explore the possibility of racism-conscious policy, the recent Supreme Court decision’s effect on race-conscious policies, and the tools available to policy makers seeking to provide everyone with a fair and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health.
