Addressing Racism in College, 2020
Vulnerable, Transparent, Solution-focused
In this episode, I’m going to be vulnerable and transparent about addressing racism on college campuses everywhere. Because we know that racism impacts health, this is a public health topic that I want to address with the public health community. My apologies for the strain in my voice, but this was one of the most difficult episodes for me to record. The topic is personal, sensitive, and important. It represents an issue that so many people deal with every day. Although I will discuss the problem, I will also share some resources that I believe are excellent options for addressing this problem right now. I’m asking for all of you to listen to this full episode. We need all hands on deck for this. At the very end, I have one big “ask” of you.
