Race, Racism, and Health

STEM Up: Healthier Communities

Join us for conversations about creating healthier, more equitable communities.

Race, Racism, and Health brings health systems, researchers, and community providers together to facilitate conversations about health equity in our communities. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities have been historically underrepresented and underserved in healthcare systems. Together, we will analyze and discuss how we can aspire to inspire change.
