Racism & Trauma: How Does Racism Get Under Our Skin?

March 17, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Free
racism and trauma - the impact of racism on health

How exactly does racism “get under our skin?” How does something like racism factor in when we look at health outcomes? When the original ACES study was done, racism wasn’t one of the adverse experiences identified as the population studied was only 5% black. However, when the Philadelphia Expanded ACES study was done, they found that over one-third (34.5%) of adults reported experiencing discrimination based on their race or ethnicity.

At the March TCC General Meeting, we’ll use the film: UNNATURAL CAUSES: When the Bough Breaks as a launching pad for a discussion of racism and trauma.  The film explores birth outcomes, factoring in economics and education.  We hope you’ll join us for the discussion.  Our panelist include:

Yolanda Ogbolu, Ph.D. CRNP-Neonatal
FNAP Assistant Professor Director, Office of Global Health Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Nurse Faculty Scholar University of Maryland School of Nursing

Jan Desper Peters, MPA,
Executive Director Black Mental Health Alliance
