Annotation

All children deserve an equal chance to grow and thrive, but too often, obstacles to health, such as poverty, access to quality education and healthcare, discrimination, and personal bias get in the way.

Addressing the persistent inequities in our health systems will take the concerted efforts of many individuals—public health professionals, nurses, clinicians, policy makers, community advocates, and families, among others. Because, while health disparities are rooted in the structures of our systems, change begins with each one of us.

This is why NICHQ is launching a series of webinars to support individuals who are pursuing equity within the health system. If you have ever felt overwhelmed on where to begin with tackling such a complex subject, we invite you to register for our first webinar and join us in what will be an ongoing conversation. This webinar addresses individual implicit bias.

Learning Objectives

• An overview of health equity and implicit bias, and their impact on children's health.

• A modeling exercise to explore how to recognize and address our own individual implicit bias.

• Resources and guidance to help attendees continue this journey after the webinar.
