Kaleidoscope – February 2022

Join us as we celebrate Black History Month.

Black History Month is not just about the past – but clearly about acknowledging and committing to great efforts in the work we must do every day to break down and eliminate inequities, racism, and discrimination.  This year, Black History Month focuses on Black Health and Wellness.  Join us in a conversation with Drs. Deborah Haskins and Carmela Washington-Harvey, as they share their insights on how historical and current experiences of racism and discrimination contribute to barriers and inequities in our healthcare system; how economic inequality plays a role; how the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to mental health stressors; and more.
