Part 2: How Past is our Past? How Should We Care About the Impact of Structural Racism on Substance Use

May 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

As the nation moves more towards value-based care, it’s critical that public health officials, clinicians, behavioral health specialists, and other healthcare providers understand how to identify, prevent, and treat populations that have experienced structural racism. In Part 2 of the two-part webinar series, How Past is our Past? Unpacking and Mitigating the Impact of Structural Racism on Substance Use, we’ll examine racism as a seventh social determinant of health and how we, as healthcare providers, can prevent and treat substance use prevention.


By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize how structural racism can manifest in the behavioral health setting.
  2. Develop tactics on how to prevent and treat substance use, as well as promote healthy coping mechanisms.
  3. List the risk and protective factors of substance use as it relates to structural racism.
  4. Understand how to implement and promote health equity, as well as how to keep developing their skills in the field.
  5. Become leaders in promoting health equity and mitigating their risk for propagating racist systems, policies, and institutions.
