Seattle CityClub is hosting a two-part Civic Boot Camp series “Healthcare for all: Addressing racism in our community health system” Local health leaders will discuss the impact of racism on public health and what we can do to address it. They will explore the need for a reckoning with our institutional systems and personal biases that contribute to inequitable health outcomes based on race and discuss specific strategies to address racism in our community health system.

This is the second part in a two part series. The first webinar will take place on Friday, November 5. In this program on Friday, November 12th, community health leaders will address:

  • How racism impacts health disparities and outcomes of BIPOC community members, especially during the pandemic.
  • How community health programs address racism and strive for health equity.
  • How we (as a community and individually) can promote health equity

Speakers

  • Sofia Aragon, Executive Director, Washington Center for Nursing
  • AyeNay A. Abye, CEO, Tubman Center for Health & Freedom

Moderator

  • Christin Ayers, Executive Producer of Facing Race, King 5

The webinar will run for 1 hour with a post-panel 30-minute small group breakout session so participants can interact directly with the speakers. The panel will be recorded and made available to the public a week after the final event in the series concludes.
