NCCHC has formed an ad hoc Committee on Systemic Racism in Correctional Health Care to identify how racism toward Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) manifests in our work environments and its many negative impacts, as well as identifying ways to chip away at racism and improve our patients' well-being. Screening and discussion of the critically acclaimed film documentary "13th" directed by Ava Duvernay will continue conversations surrounding systemic racism.
- Discuss causes of systemic racism in correctional health care
- Describe how racism impacts systems and individuals
