“Racism is a Public Health Crisis: Impacts on Health, Healthcare Access, and Quality of Care”

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to hear from frontline health care providers, program directors, researchers and public policy experts combating health disparities and inequities.

This panel discussion will be held today (April 14) from 7 to 8 p.m. 

The panel will address chronic health issues such as diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, poor women’s health and infant mortality—and explain the barriers and obstacles to quality health care. Attendees will learn how clinical and community approaches are mitigating and preventing racialized health disparities for children, adults, and seniors. 

Ronald Hickman Jr., associate dean for research at the school of nursing, will be on the panel.

The League of Women Voters and WCPN 90.3 ideastream will host the event.
