Health Equity Workshop

This one-day training on October 6 is designed to help health professionals and community members alike, to develop the common language necessary to explore how discrimination and social identities impact health outcomes. It will address how racism, sexism, able-ism, and other oppressions lead to negative health outcomes, and how discrimination enters the body to damage life and health.

Friday, October 6, 9:00am- 4:00pm, at Wesley Foundation, 820 Rankin Rd., Kalamazoo 49006 (on WMU campus, near Howard Ave.)

Lunch will be provided.

In June, ISAAC co-sponsored the very important talk by physician Dr. David Ansell, author of The Death Gap, brought here by the WMU Walker Institute.  This workshop is part of our community response to what Dr. Ansell called “the human consequences of structural violence associated with race and class inequality and, most importantly, what we need to do to make it right.”
