Diversity and Equity in Reproductive and Sexual Health Care


Tuesday, October 12, 2021

12:00pm-1:15pm EST

Registration closes October 11, 2021, at 11:59pm EST.
This webinar will explore diversity and equity in the reproductive and sexual health care field. While doing so, participants will examine historical and current practices that impact diverse communities as well as strategies for adapting services to be more inclusive. It will also discuss how we, as a community, can create an inclusive and diverse environment for programs and professions. 

Here is what participants can expect to learn at this event:
  • Past medical practices that may explain the hesitancy of communities of color to seek sexual and reproductive health services
  • Current practices that minimize patient autonomy in an effort to avoid those practices
  • The value in adapting principles of reproductive justice when working with communities of color
  • Strategies for adapting more inclusive services for black, indigenous, and other communities of color
  • How to increase diversity in public health programs and professions
