Event description

Description

In 2015, the infant mortality rate was more than twice as high among blacks than among white non-Hispanics. How does systemic racism contribute to this and other health disparities, and what can we do about it? Explore these issues at this year’s symposium, and develop specific ways we can create positive change in our community.


Featured Speakers:

State Representative Jeffrey Sánchez, Chairman, MA House Ways and Means Committee

Dr. Nancy Krieger, Professor of Social Epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Bishop Dwayne Royster, founding Pastor of Living Water United Church of Christ in Philadelphia and Political Director of PICO (People Improving Communities through Organizing)
