Racism is a public health issue, with significant impacts to health and well-being.
Public health and healthcare professionals know firsthand the impacts that long-standing discriminatory structures and institutionalized racism have on health outcomes. This has been particularly pronounced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is the role of public health in dismantling historical barriers, embedded segregation, and legacies of structural racism in our communities? Health professionals are at the forefront of efforts to achieve health equity, but we will only be successful if we focus as individuals, teams, and organizations to address the system underlying these disparities and the structural racism of our communities.
To build skills, knowledge, and learning for health professionals, PHF has curated a set of five high quality, recent, and complementary trainings. Each of these trainings are roughly one hour and are available through the TRAIN Learning Network​:
Trainings include:
  • Achieving Health Equity – Tools for a National Campaign Against Racism
  • Health Equity and Environmental Justice 101 Training
  • Segregation Stress Syndrome: From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin
  • Working Across Government to Advance Health and Racial Equity
  • #NYCHealthEquity – Advancing Racial and Social Justice
