About the Event

Racism has led to structural barriers that determine where a person lives and goes to school, their access to health care and whether or not they make a living wage.

Over generations, this has had a disproportionately adverse effect on communities of color, leading to significant premature mortality and other health inequities that are severe, far-reaching, and unacceptable.

Join us on June 9 as Dr. Helene Gayle, CEO of the Chicago Community Trust, leads a panel of three experts in a discussion of racism’s impact on public health and steps to address these deep-rooted issues.
