Camara P. Jones, MD, PhD, MPH, APHA President

The APHA Presidential Initiative: A National Campaign Against Racism aims to identify all areas in which racism exists and operates, and, to make swift and practical steps towards health equity through its elimination.  The goals are to:

•       Put racism on the agenda;

•       Ask “How is racism operating here?”; and

•       Organize and strategize to act.

The cornerstone of the initiative is the creation of an Anti-Racism Collaborative, which will be hosted through APHA Connect and run by APHA members/volunteers. The Collaborative aims to facilitate conversation, education, research and intervention on racism. Join APHA President, Dr. Camara Jones, as she provides background on the initiative, discusses efforts to date and provide more detail about the Anti-Racism Collaborative.
