Healing Hate: A Public Health Perspective on Civil Rights in America

Friday, January 31, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

A conference hosted by the University of Virginia Schools of Law and Medicine will focus on the impact of racial and ethnic discrimination in driving public health disparities. The event will bring together scholars, clinicians, policymakers and community leaders to take a public health approach in treating and reducing violence, disease and injury due to racism, hate speech, crimes and violence. At the conclusion of the event, participants will announce a civil rights framework to combat health disparities, and generate and disseminate evidenced-based proposals and tools aimed at eliminating health disparities. The conference is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Information about parking at the Medical School is forthcoming. Lunch will be served to registrants. For events at Pinn Hall on Jan. 31, parking is available in the Health System South Garage, located at 380 Crispell Drive. Full Details/Schedule
