Each day, we have opportunities to fight racism and bias in our work in public health. From our hiring practices to microaggressions that occur in internal meetings to the data we collect to the policies we influence, enact, and enforce — racism and bias impact all facets of public health. Studies show that this ultimately causes a negative impact on health outcomes and hinders our efforts to reduce racial inequities in health.
Through a hypothetical case study, following the day of a local public health practitioner, this training explores: 1) The myriad ways that racism and bias can be operationalized in the everyday practice of public health; 2) Why being explicit about microaggressions, bias, and racism is foundational to eliminating racial health disparities; and 3) Practical strategies for addressing racism, bias, and microaggressions as essential aspects of everyday practice in public health.
This learning opportunity topic is aligned with one or more of the strategic skills.
This learning opportunity addresses training topics identified in PHWINS 2017.
