The Racing Toward Equity Series, hosted by the Diversity and Health Equity Peer Learning Collaborative at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine was a series of three seminars intended to address the various forms of racism, understanding of it’s system level structures, and ways one can be involved in overcoming the challenges related to this work. 

The American Public Health Association’s webinar “Quantifying Racism to Understand and Address Health Disparities” was used in two of three seminars.” The webinar includes an introduction to racism and health disparities, a discussion of implementation and measurement challenges in public health research, a discussion on the measurement of the physiologic impacts of racism on health, and the lessons learned from the the work and how to overcome challenges.
