Racial Equity Institute Groundwater Training

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to participate in a learning journey to increase the shared understanding of racial inequities that impact health, and to discuss strategies to promote a more equitable society.

The event, titled Racial Equity Institute Groundwater Training, will be held Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 5 to 8 p.m. in Wolstein Research Building auditorium.

Faculty, researchers, clinicians, public health professionals, social workers, community partners, trainees and students are encouraged to attend.

Attendees will:

  • Be informed about their catchment area, disparities and/or community-based research;
  • Learn how structures (e.g. health care, education) lead to inequities;
  • Build better community-academic collaborations;
  • Improve patient and community engagement; and
  • Be a part of our institutional transformation.
