March 16, 2023: 10th Harry E. Ford, III, M.D./Margaret Henehan, Lecture on Psychiatric Treatments of Minority and Underserved Populations
HIV, AIDS & Black Health and Wellness in the Current Socio-Cultural Milieu [Overcoming Health Inequities to Advance Health Outcomes: a Health and Human Justice Framing]
The key premise in this lecture/discussion is that historical factors, including policy and structural factors, have set the foundations for the current health inequities facing many US communities. Therefore, efforts to resolve discrete health inequities in medical, public health behavioral health areas require not just attention to these factors, but deliberative work to underdo these historical underpinnings.
Reducing and ultimately eliminating health inequities requires interventions that apply the best of clinical and biomedical interventions in tandem with macro-structural reforms. Minus this multi-system approach, health inequalities remain enveloped in a shallow narrative that leads to tinkering with the edges rather than addressing the deeply embedded sources of the disequitable system.
This program is intended for: Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Fellows, Residents, Interns and Nurses
Upon completion of the activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe specific examples of non-medicalized, value-added services in the eradication of health inequalities and human rights (practice and policy).
- Apply actionable steps to support diverse communities’ routine HIV/AIDS engagement in and with clinical practices and achieving beneficial outcomes.
- Critique diverse examinations of the meaning of race in health inequality research, differentiating between the biological, genetic, psychological, AND social categorizations of people.
