Dr. Christopher's work focuses on the relationship between racial inequity and disparities of environmental health and justice. Consequently, racial healing and transformation of existing beliefs, policies, and practices play central roles as solutions. Dr. Christopher's most recent work with the National Collaborative for Health Equity also provides communities and organizations research-based roadmaps and data-driven benchmarks to guide their efforts to reimagine healthier communities and 'undo the health consequences of racism'. This webinar will be a conversational, interview format, so you're invited to send along questions prior to the 27th. I hope you can join us for this important conversation.
