Social Justice in Public Health

The focus of the series this year is the complex intersections between the COVID-19 pandemic, structual racism, and inequities in mental health, through the public health lens. Speakers will address the social and structural determinants that contribute to the inequities in mental health and will discuss solutions and opportunities that these public health crises present.
