Lakeshore Dr., 6th FL, Shedd Conference Room. 

Background:

On September 13th, the Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) and the Center for Community Health (CCH) hosted a viewing party for the 25th annual National Health Equity Research Webcast. The theme for this year's webcast was Structural Racism. As the webcast's moderator, Professor Anissa Vines, assistant professor of social epidemiology at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, put it, "Structural racism is an '-ism' that kills". The panel included Drs. Derrick Griffin, Zinzi Bailey, and Felicia Arriaga. These distinguished scholars walked participants through a lecture on the origins of the social construct called race, to a discussion on how social epidemiologists have worked to measure and operationalize structural racism in research, and finally real life examples of systemic marginalization and criminalization in what scholars cite as the "deportation continuum".

If you were not able watch the webcast on 9/13 you can view it here: 2019 National Health Equity Research Webcast.

Please join us and share your thoughts about how research can be a catalyst for ending structural racism.

Light refreshments will be served and ALL are welcome!
