2021 Asheville African American Health Symposium | Live in Asheville, NC & Virtual

Description

According to the January 2020, Healthy North Carolina 2030 Report, there are stark disparities in life expectancy across race, geography, and gender, as well as intersections of these characteristics that show wide gaps between groups. The disparities for African Americans compared to whites are due in part to issues stemming from limited health care access, lack of trust in medical professionals, social and economic factors like racism and unemployment. Racial disparities are unremitting and widespread within the African American population.

The causes are multifactorial - including historical oppression, implicit bias toward African American patients, community mistrust, and lack of diversity within the healthcare field, to name a few. The goal of this 3-day national symposium is to have healthcare providers apply learned evidenced-based strategies from African American healthcare leaders across the nation in order to continue to improve the health of African Americans. This conference will increase their knowledge and awareness of racism as a healthcare crisis and analyze healthcare disparities affecting our black communities and examine the causes of these disparities, including implicit bias of providers, historical trauma of African Americans, and lack of diversity within the healthcare workforce.
