Courageous Conversations: Equitable Access to Healthcare: Racism as a Public Health Crisis – Disparities/Maternal Mortality
December 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm MST
Inequities within our healthcare system have existed for a long time, but recent big headline events such as Serena Williams’ birth story and Chadwick Boseman’s death have brought the conversation of health disparities within communities of color back to the forefront. Join Mile High United Way as they learn about how poverty, racism, access to quality healthcare, and more impact overall health outcomes and quality of life care for communities of color. Together we will explore how to remove barriers and increase investment in health research, understanding, and appropriate treatment, and how these investments can change the landscape of healthcare for generations to come.
