Event description

Description

During this conversation, we will explore:

  • How Black women, both historically and today, fall victim to medical experimentation especially around reproduction and contraceptive therapies
  • What systemic racism in healthcare looks like as Black women experience it
  • Strategies and recommendations for addressing trauma and inequity through policy, institutional culture, and structural behavioral changes.
