Opening Remarks with Dr. Jim Lange and the HECAOD Staff
“The Urgency of Now: Addressing Health Inequities and Disparities through Advocacy and Root Work.”
A Conversation with Dr. Shawnté Elbert
As practitioners amid a pandemic and social unrest, this is uncharted territory for many of us. With a dynamic shift focused on social justice, DEI, race-related stress, substance use, and prevention, practitioners must shift their Eurocentric methods along the paradigm of prevention to recovery as related to marginalized populations. Dr. Shawnté Elbert, Associate Vice President of Health and Well-being at The Ohio State University, will explore the definitions of health equity and health disparity, address health inequities and health disparities and the impact of racial trauma, and will discuss how to build connections across the continuum to ensure equity-based interventions and healing.
Dr. Elbert’s keynote will be pre-recorded and available to view beginning the week of July 26. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Elbert to discuss her keynote and how professionals can take action.
