The Role of Social Justice in Public Health
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 1:30–3 p.m.
Presenter: Dr. Dawn Thomas, Ohio Mental Health & Addiction Services (OhioMHAS)
According the American Public Health Association (APHA), “racism and other forms of structured inequity sap our potential to become the healthiest nation.” Racism and other “isms” are forces that determine the distribution of the social determinants of health. Join us for a discussion on how social justice efforts play a role in addressing these issues and positively impacting public health outcomes.
2019 Training Series: Social Justice & Public Health
Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal rights and opportunities — this includes the right to good health. Yet today, there are inequities in health that are avoidable, unnecessary and unjust. These inequities are principally the result of policies and practices that create an unequal distribution of money, power and resources among communities based on race, class, gender, place and other factors. Join us for this FREE training series to discuss the role of social justice in achieving health equity. Registration is required.
