DEI Event: Healthcare Delivery and Social Equity
Tim Wise can say, without fear of contradiction, that we’re now in the largest racial justice uprising in the history of the United States. The fact that this has happened in the middle of a pandemic not only makes it a public health crisis, but a social justice issue as well.
Wise, one of the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States, was the featured speaker for the Salus University’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee’s virtual Lunch and Learn event Sept. 23 titled “Interest Conversion in a Time of Pandemic and Police Brutality: How COVID and Growing Authoritarianism Provide an Opening for Solidarity.”
During his lecture, he stressed the importance of both public health and social justice moving forward, even more so now given the current circumstances, and offered some suggestions for the Salus community as healthcare educators and providers.
