Dr. Camara Jones on Race, Racism and Canadians’ Health: Video

Dr. Camara Jones from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention gave a lively talk to an engaged audience about the trend of racism in health care in the United States. A national conversation on racism in health care is still lacking in the United States, she argues, and certainly in Canada this is also true. Further this necessitates a larger discussion about race and racism and how that affects the health of a population. Watch the video below to hear more.
