ERACCE: Health Equity Workshop

July 29, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

ERACCE is offering a Health Equity Workshop! This one-day training is designed to help health professionals and community members alike develop the common language necessary to explore how discrimination and social identities impact health outcomes.

It will address how racism, sexism, ableism, and other oppressions lead to negative health outcomes, and how discrimination enters the body to damage life and health. In this workshop, participants will examine the power dynamics that create and maintain racial, gender, and other disparities, participate in active learning exercises, participate in thoughtful and guided conversations, and assess the Multicultural Diversity of health institutions in Kalamazoo.

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE: Friday 9:00am-4:00pm. Full participation is important as each part builds on the previous. Lunch will be provided.
