The Double Whammy: The Disproportionate Impact of Systemic Racism and COVID on Children of Color
April 30 @ 2:30 pm
The Carolina Seminars Program will host “The Double Whammy: The Disproportionate Impact of Systemic Racism and COVID on Children of Color: Interdisciplinary Conversations and Development of a Research to Practice and Poly Agenda” with Dr. Debra Furr-Holden.
Debra Furr-Holden, PhD, is a C.S. Mott Endowed Professor of Public Health Director, Division of Public Health; Associate Dean for Public Health Integration; Director of the Flint Center for Health Equity Solutions, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.
The event will be moderated by Betsy Ayankoya, MEd.
The series aims to increase awareness about the impact of disparities that contribute to children’s ability to keep pace, which have broad dire effects on the neurodevelopmental trajectories of children growing in disadvantaged households and communities. The seminar will further inform science-based policy measures that compel action within our local and state governments to drive initiatives that combat disparities impacting early childhood learning and well-being.
