Event Description

Join BioBus for their third town hall series on a topic that you – the BioBus community and students – asked for space and time to discuss. The series continues with “How Racism Affects Public Health.” What is public health? What is mental health? How do both public and mental health relate to racism? Does racism impact your own experience with a doctor, therapist, or healthcare provider? Do certain diseases impact people of some races more or less than others?
