Redlining & Health Equity: How Health Systems Can Help Dismantle Structural Racism

Hospitals and health systems are increasingly looking to move upstream to improve care and outcomes. As these industry leaders work to improve individual social needs and community-level social determinants of health, some trailblazers are looking even further upstream — to the structural determinants of health equity.

 

This webinar addresses one of the most pervasive forms of structural racism: redlining. We hear national leaders, including PolicyLink founder Angela Glover Blackwell, explain historic and ongoing impacts of redlining on community health, with real-life examples. And we share concrete suggestions on ways health systems and partners can help dismantle, mitigate, and prevent redlining.

 

Join us for this important conversation about bold ways your upstream work can help #UndoRedlining.

 

Speakers:

  • Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH, Founder & President, HealthBegins
  • Angela Glover Blackwell, Founder in Residence, PolicyLink
  • Josie Williams, Director of Community Engagement, Greensboro Housing Coalition
  • Sadena Thevarajah, JD, Managing Director, HealthBegins

 

Webinar Objectives:

By the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the history of redlining in America.
  • Identify the impact of redlining on current efforts to improve social determinants of health and equity.
  • Detail at least three ways health systems and community partners can help dismantle and prevent redlining.
