The recordings of the OPHA Public Policy Institute are now available for viewing. This series explored the many ways that institutional racism has diminished life and health outcomes for communities of color. Increased infant and maternal mortality rates; escalating incidence of heart disease, diabetes and stroke; proximity to environmental pollutants; low wage employment opportunities; substandard schools; and a disproportionate share of the incarcerated population are just some of the challenges a person of color must contend with while striving to be successful.
The series was presented in partnership with the Region V Public Health Training Center. The Michigan Public Health Training Center at the University of Michigan School of Public Health is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. The recordings are for viewing only. Follow the on-demand links to register to receive free CE through the Region V Public Health Training Center.
