Understanding The Health Consequences Of Racism & What You Can Do About It

This presentation provides an overview of the large and persistent socioeconomic and racial/ethnic disparities in health. It highlights scientific evidence that reveals that there are distinctive social exposures linked to racial status and these race-related aspects of social experience create inequities in health and health care quality. It also reviews scientific evidence which documents that tackling the social determinants of health can lead to improvements in health and reductions in health inequities.

The focus is on both interventions within the healthcare system that address some of the social determinants of health, as well as, interventions in upstream factors (such as housing, neighborhood conditions, economic well-being and investing in early childhood development) that can lead to improvements in health and reduced social inequities in health.
