|An Introduction to Health Equality & Social Justice|
Prevention Institute staff Lisa Fujie Parks, MPH, will open the webinar with a brief introduction to health equity and social justice and their importance to public health practice, including injury and violence prevention. Prevention Institute encourages community health and health equity by facilitating a deeper collective understanding of how root causes—such as racism and poverty—shape community environments and norms which, in turn, influence outcomes for health, safety, and health equity. Prevention Institute’s fact sheet, Links Between Violence and Health Equity, is a helpful resource.
Broadening the Context for Injury and Violence Prevention:
A Cliff Analogy and a Gardener’s Tale
Featured speaker Dr. Camara Jones will discuss the interconnections between health interventions, the social determinants of health, health inequity, and the mechanisms by which systems of structured inequity affect populations. Through the lens of the injury and violence prevention goals outlined by Healthy People 2020, Dr. Jones will discuss how racism adversely impacts health outcomes and unfairly advantages or disadvantages specific individuals and communities. Using her celebrated article Levels of Racism: A Theoretic Framework and a Gardener's Tale as a foundation, she will offer perspectives on the relationships between race, ethnicity, social class, and health.
NOTE: The live webinar will be recorded and archived in the Safe States Alliance Training Center.

Poindexter Award from the Black Caucus of Health Workers; and inaugural 2003 David Satcher Award from the Association of State and Territorial Directors of Health Promotion and Public Health Education.
