This free, virtual conversation will focus on making equity visible in the health care of African-Americans. Participants will gain insight on the impact, marginalization, and lack of cultural sensitivity to African-Americans in healthcare. They will also be provided with information that will assist in them being allies and advocates for their own health and the health of African-Americans. Finally, participants will be provided with ways they can lead from their respective roles in the community to promote visible equity in the healthcare of African-Americans.
