400 Years of Inequality: Achieving Redemption, Reconciliation, and Equity Today
Mon 9/23 8:30AM - 4:00PM
William Pitt Union

As this nation marks 400 hundred years of inequality since 1619 when the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown, nationally prominent scholars and community activists join in a one-day symposium examining this American legacy. How does the racial and social oppression forced upon enslaved Africans and their descendants translate to racial inequities? And what are the remedies, successful interventions, and steps necessary for achieving equity today

About the CHE Journal Club

CHE Journal Club word cloud 2014

The Center for Health Equity hosts a monthly journal club meeting to facilitate dialogue about health equity among faculty, students, staff, and community members. We hope to spark an intellectually, enriching discussion regarding ways to research a problem or intervene to contribute to the solution.

While housed in BCHS, the journal club is open to faculty, students, staff, and community members who are interested in health equity from Pitt Public Health and beyond. Journal club members will take turns in choosing a journal article they find particularly interesting and that can stimulate discussion. Manuscripts are also discussed and feedback is provided to the authors. Faculty-student, staff-student, faculty-staff, community-faculty, and community-staff facilitator teams are encouraged. If you have questions or want to volunteer to facilitate a meeting of the CHE Journal Club, contact Patricia Documét.
