Event Details

On Tuesday, September 21, the FXB Center will host “Anti-Racism in Public Health Policies, Practice, and Research,” a virtual symposium. One of the FXB Center’s latest core initiatives focuses on unpacking and addressing structural racism and health in the U.S. and other parts of the globe. The goal of the FXB Center is to deepen the knowledge base and fill gaps in content and methodology, while ensuring that research and evidence is responsive to community needs and informs policymaking.

The symposium aims to launch this initiative and start a series of conversations and research on racism as a determinant of health, as a root cause of health inequalities, and as a health stressor in itself in view of improving data and practice-oriented research and informing policies and practices.
