In recognition of the 400th year marking the arrival of the first group of African slaves in the U.S., ASPPH is presenting a webinar, “400 Years of Inequality – A Public Health Perspective to Eliminate Racial Disparities,” on Wednesday, October 16 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern. Dr. Diane-Marie St. George, associate professor and director of the MPH Program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) Public Health Programs, will moderate the webinar. Dr. St. George will be joined by Dr. Thomas LaVeist, dean of Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and Dr. Robert Fullilove, associate dean of community and minority affairs at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health.
