The Students of Color for Public Health at the University of Washington is holding their third annual Anti-Racism and Community Health (ARCH) Conference on May 14th from 10am-4pm at the ECC.
The 2022 Anti-Racism and Community Health Conference is a day-long program conference curated by the Students of Color for Public Health at the University of Washington. Their goal is to facilitate a collaborative community health conference to identify and prioritize needs, barriers, and solutions in confronting how racism and white supremacy have caused detrimental health outcomes in communities.
They are excited to feature Mohamed Shidane, Deputy Director of the Somali Health Board, as their Keynote Speaker, alongside a range of public health professionals as speakers, workshop leaders, and panelists. As a collective, speakers and attendees will critically examine their own identities and lived experiences to question how our health has been impacted by racism. They hope that attendees will leave the conference inspired and equipped to take action with knowledge of basic concepts of social justice work, an understanding of the importance of diversity in the public health field, and knowledge on how to utilize cultural humility when working with local communities.
