RSVP for Zoom Link

Join the Department of Occupational Therapy for an interactive discussion on the systematic barriers to healthcare that Black Americans have faced throughout history. What lessons can we learn from the past in order to provide equitable care for Black Americans today?

Our discussion will be based on the fourth episode of The New York Times audio series 1619 entitled "How the Bad Blood Started," which illuminates the ever-present intersection of race and health in the United States.

We recommend attendees listen to the episode prior to the event.
