Racism is a Public Health Issue: Now What?

Racism is a public health issue, a fact declared by all major public health groups, including APHA, PPHA, and NAM to name a few. As the birthplace of our nation, of modern medicine, and as a leader in education, the City of Philadelphia has a long and storied past with racism and structural inequities. How will we reconcile our past with our present to better the health of our communities? Join The College of Physician's Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine on February 17 for a discussion on racism and health in Philadelphia.

Featured Panelists: TBA

This Public Health Grand Rounds is presented by The Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia in coordination with Philadelphia Department of Public Health with funding support from the Independence Foundation.
