Getting Political in Public Health: a Conversation with Prof. Mary T. Bassett
Dartmouth Health Equity Speaker Series Talk

Friday, January 15, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This program is brought to you by our partnership with The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.

Health inequity has been one of the most pressing issues of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. Concurrently, we are are also examining the deep roots of racism and historical trauma that have led to the systemic exclusion of many generations of Black, indigenous, and people of color communities from economic and social opportunities. Prof. Bassett will share some of her thoughts on how we reconcile our past to achieve health equity for future generations and the most impactful, if politically challenging, approaches to do so.
