2022 Virtual Series - Health Equity Anti-Racism Training (HEAT)

1/27/2022 6:30:00 PM

Virtual Series

White patients are twice as likely to utilize any mental health service compared to Black patients, but Black patients are twice as likely as Whites to be hospitalized on an inpatient unit.  Caring for patients means caring for the whole person, including addressing barriers that lead to difficulty accessing care.  The Health Equity Anti-Racism Training (HEAT) series is intended to assist Illinois psychiatrists in building awareness and skills to address and overcome psychosocial challenges and disparities that affect our patients.  Participants will learn to incorporate best practices in anti-racism into their daily practice.  Please join us as we bring on the HEAT!
