ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
SBH REGIONAL FORUM
The Center for Black Health & Equity is pleased to host the State of Black Health, the most compelling convening of public health professionals and community advocates concerned with achieving health equity for African Americans. Through panels, special activations and interactive workshops, we engage attendees in constructive dialogue about the root causes of health disparities including institutional racism, economic disparities and chronic disease. Our regional events, this year held in Oakland, CA, focus on solutions that are unique to communities in various areas of the country.
This track will address how injustices in our nation's judicial, educational, and federal institutions produce unhealthy communities and promote health inequality.
This track will explore how unemployment and the attainment of livable wages contribute to current health disparities and remains a primary concern in African American communities.
This track reviews corporate, community, healthcare, and governmental public health efforts that are moving the needs toward reducing HIV, COVID-19, cancer or other disease disparities.
