Johns Hopkins University to host three-part livestreamed seminar series on racism in public health

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is offering a three-part seminar series: “Racism in Public Health: Historical Perspectives and Current Challenges." 

The series aims to confront the historical and ongoing forms of racism that exist in the field of public health, while learning about alternative methods of conducting public health that have attempted to resist and challenge such legacies. Each session of the series will include three components: a historical perspective from an expert in the field, a current perspective from someone working on a connected issue today and discussion. 

Each session will be livestreamed and recorded. For additional information and to register:
