September 28, 2020
Join the Martha S. Pitzer Center for Women, Children and Youth for our next Lean In speaker. Collins O. Airhihenbuwa, PhD, MPH, will explore how structural racism is at the core of health disparity and must be dismantled to achieve health equity and social justice. Promoting a culture of anti-racism demands approaches that are transdisciplinary by unpacking health researches, policies and actions that promises to unburden disproportionate disease burdens on Black and Brown bodies. In this lecture, he will discuss ways in which critical race theory can be used to unpack structural racism for sustainable anti-racism actions needed to achieve health equity and social justice locally and globally.
