Wayne State University's Center for Health Equity and Community Knowledge in Urban Populations - CHECK-UP - and the Karmanos Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Health Equity & Community Engagement are pleased to present their 2022 Community Engaged Research Symposium Series.
The Wayne State University community is invited to the second symposium, Black Health and Racial Equity on October 25, 25, & 27, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The symposium will be held virtually; the conference link will be emailed to registrants. To register, visit https://bit.ly/symposiumseries
The Black Health and Racial Equity Symposium will consist of brief presentations from researchers and community, followed by discussion focused breakout rooms. The breakout rooms will develop a call to action that will be reported back to the larger group to set an agenda that helps move work forward in the space of Black Health and Racial Equity. This highly engaging symposium will focus heavily on discussion and agenda setting as beginning steps of the Black Health & Racial Equity Research Network. The Planning Committee deliberately created an agenda addressing three overarching topics contributing to Black and racial health inequities:
- Structural racism and implicit bias on health outcomes
- Food Access
- Digital divide
