Translating Anti-Racism Knowledge from Theory to Public Health Practice Webinar

Translating Anti-Racism Knowledge from Theory to Public Health Practice Webinar

What: Webinar
When: April 6, 2021
Time: 12:00 PM
This webinar discusses how public health spaces have fallen short in addressing racism as a public health problem. The focus will be on uncovering ways to move beyond theory/research on racism as a determinant of health to concrete actions that public health professionals should take to address this issue.
The webinar is presented by Diane Smylie, who is the Ontario Lead for Projects and Partnerships for San'yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Learning Programs, and Samiya Abdi, who is a Senior Program Specialist at Public Health Ontario.
Diane's presentation focuses on the importance of grounding public health practice in knowledge that includes a strong understanding of anti-Indigenous racism on Turtle Island and the ongoing and specific effects this has on the health of First Nations, Inuit and Metis Peoples. Diane also shares information about the anti-racist education programs offered by San'yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Learning Programs.
Samiya's presentation focuses on anti-Black racism as a public health crisis, covering the histories behind this topic, as well as what is being done to address it within public health spaces today. Her focus is on moving beyond the acknowledgement of anti-Black racism to actions that can be taken by public health to produce institutional change.
