Seminars in the series:

“Investing in Justice: Truth Telling, Racial Healing and Transformation”

Thursday, Sept. 14, 12-1:30 p.m., Diboll Auditorium (1st floor), Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine, 1440 Canal Street, New Orleans LA 70112
Featuring: Flozell Daniels, Jr., CEO and President of Foundation for Louisiana

In every sector of society, communities are seeking solutions to some of this generation’s most entrenched challenges. New Orleans in particular and Louisiana in general experience nation-leading racial disparities when it comes to such issues as mass incarceration, affordable housing, access to jobs and entrepreneurism, coastal restoration/environmental adaptation. They therefore represent a great opportunity for today’s leaders to recognize the healing merits of racial reconciliation and justice-centered action. Recently passed justice reinvestment legislation — the most far-reaching in Louisiana’s history — will be explored in the context of Foundation for Louisiana’s evolving work in the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) framework.

“A Symptom of Bigger Issues: Exploring Black LGBT Health Disparities”

Thursday, Sept. 21, 12-1:30 p.m. Room 1210 (12th floor)
Featuring: Earl Nupsius Benjamin, DrHSc, and Michael Robinson, MSW, LMSW, Principals at The BACH Group 

The session’s facilitators will examine Black LGBT health disparities. The facilitators will also discuss the social determinants of health (SDoH) that contribute to and/or exacerbate these health disparities, while also detailing SDOH approaches that can aid in the reduction of Black LGBT health disparities.

“Is Your Data Unintentionally Promoting Disparities? Framing Data to Send the Right Message and Promote Community Inclusion” 

Thursday, Sept. 28, 12-1:30 p.m., Room 1210 (12th floor)
Featuring: Rebecca Majdoch, MPH, Health Education and Communications Manager, and Sumrita Bindra, MPH, MCH Epidemiologist, and Louisiana Department of Health-OPH-Bureau of Family Health. 

As public health professionals, we are charged with sharing data with the public, most of whom are not epidemiologists. Sharing statistics without providing context can lead to misinterpretation, up to and including unintentionally blaming a vulnerable population for their health disparities. We will talk about how our health communications and data teams have been implementing steps to assure that we frame our data in reports, fact sheets, and even in response to data requests, in order to call out inequities without stigmatizing populations.

(Recordings of the seminars will be made available on the CEMCH YouTube page within a week of the seminar.)
