400 years ago in Jamestown, Virginia, Africans were brought to America by the transatlantic slave trade and sold into bondage for the first time. As the nation reflects on the ways in which slavery has created structural societal inequalities, it is crucial to acknowledge the lasting impacts slavery has had on the health of African Americans.
On Friday, October 18, the School of Public Health will have research presentations and a panel discussion entitled "400 Years of Inequity and the Impact on Today's Public Health." This event is part of a national movement by schools of public health. Our presenters will give individual research presentation on the history of race and US medical experimentation, African American women maternal health and African American men oncology treatment, before taking part in a panel discussion.
