Dismantling Racism in the Health System
Tuesday, May 17, 2016
7:30pm — 9pm
Beth Israel’s Phillips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ E 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium
Featuring: Kamini Doobay, NYC Coalition to Dismantle Racism in the Health System
Moderator: Oliver Fein, MD, Physicians for a National Health Program
Discussant: Danny Neghassi, MD, Physicians for a National Health Program
A coalition of organizations formed in 2015 to examine racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare and their associations with poor health, as well as the role institutional racism plays in healthcare institutions. The coalition sponsored a day-long conference in March titled “Dismantling Racism in the NYC Health System: The Time is Now” and continues to organize to end racism in the health system.
Join us for a forum that will feature a report on this historic conference as well as research on inequities in the current health care system. How does racism and segregation of care operate in the health system? How would a single-payer health insurance address these disparities and what more do we need to do have equity and equality in our health system? How can we play an active role in dismantling racism in the health system and beyond?
All are encouraged to be part of this necessary discussion.
