Race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status are just a few of the social determinants that contribute to health disparities. Apply a racial equity lens to drive a deeper understanding of how vulnerable populations are uniquely at risk for poorer health outcomes. Explore how where we live, work, learn, and play influences health status, and examine the processes through which social and environmental determinants adversely affect health and drive inequities across the lifespan. With experts from multiple sectors, this course will discuss innovative clinical, public health, policy, advocacy, and community engaged solutions to advance health equity. Explore the unique role of health professionals in addressing health inequities.
