Welcomes 
 

Dr. Joy DeGruy

 

 

The author of “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome”, Dr. DeGruy will provide an in-depth review of how historical social, educational and political   policies, medical practices and racism have created and/or contributed to the current health disparities rampant in communities of color. 

 

Please Join Us!

 

Following this presentation, Dr. DeGruy will engage the participants in a training designed to enhance the understanding of structural racism, how it is developed and maintained, and how it impacts the overall health and the well-being of people of color.  She will also educate the group about ways to interrupt structural racism and teach the group methods for effectively engaging individuals and organizations that are resistant to change, by utilizing an innovative organizational change model.

 

This workshop is designed specifically for professionals, community members, faculty and students and everyone interested in practice, policy, research and advocacy as it relates to the Health Disparities issues in the Capital District. Please join us for a highly interactive conversation!!
