106 Tackling Systemic Racism in Corrections: An Open Forum*

NCCHC's ad hoc Committee on Systemic Racism in Correctional Health Care has the goals of identifying how racism toward Black, Indigenous, and people of color 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. This involves gathering data and developing communication and educational strategies. This open forum invites input from the field to help us better direct our activities.

Educational Objectives

  • Discuss causes of systemic racism in correctional health care
  • Describe how it impacts systems and individuals, incarcerated and not
  • Explore ways to reduce racism in our work settings
