Racism as a Public Health Crisis: The Black Community and Lung Health
Virtual Event

Beginning in 2020, across the country, elected leaders have been passing resolutions declaring racism a public health crisis. According to the American Public Health Association, there have been 231 declarations at local, county, and state levels. Milwaukee County was the first place in the country to make a declaration, and we will hear from one of the key individuals behind that work, Lilliann Paine. We will also hear from thoracic surgeon, Dr. Ozuru Ukoha who will speak to the clinical implications of these types of declarations, and how these declarations must be followed with action.
