Racism as a Public Health Crisis

This is a past event.

Across the country, local and state leaders are declaring racism a public health crisis or emergency. These declarations are an important first step to advancing racial equity and justice, and they must be followed by strategic action. CEI Perspectives will feature a panel of experts leading discussions around this critical issue facing communities in our region and beyond. We’ll explore ways to partner in research toward solutions.
