Fallout from COVID-19, along with recent social unrest stemming from the tragic deaths of several Black members of underserved communities in America, has prompted local governments across the U.S. to formally recognize racism as a public health crisis. Tackling racism, however, requires definitive action.
Join public health experts Dr. Angela Alston, DNP, chief diversity and inclusion officer and assistant professor of practice at The Ohio State University’s College of Nursing, and William J. Hicks II, MD, co-director of OhioHealth’s Riverside Methodist Hospital Comprehensive Stroke Center to explore ways in which businesses can be leaders and major players in dismantling formal structures, informal policies and implicit biases in our nation's marketplace to improve the health of people of color.
Moderator: Cynthia Turner (MA ’95, PhD ’96), Assistant Dean and Chief Diversity Officer
