The Ohio Public Health Association (OPHA) Public Policy Institute two-part series will explore the many ways that institutional racism has diminished life and health outcomes for communities of color. Increased infant and maternal mortality rates; escalating incidence of heart disease, diabetes and stroke; proximity to environmental pollutants; low wage employment opportunities; substandard schools; and a disproportionate share of the incarcerated population are just some of the challenges a person of color must contend with while striving to be successful.

Audience

Public health professionals in governmental agencies, as well as public health and health practitioners in all settings, including nurses, health educators, managers, policy developers and/or advocates, etc.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the role racism plays in determining health outcomes in communities of color
  • Identify the ways in which state and local legislation impact health and equity issues
  • Discuss how public policy work can build lasting coalitions that provide knowledge and skills across differing racial, cultural, and ethnic communities
  • Describe successful efforts for integrating health and equity considerations into public policy decision-making
