This List Of Books, Films And Podcasts About Racism Is A Start, Not A Panacea

Population Health Collaborative will be closed today, Friday, June 19th, in observance of Juneteenth. The staff of PHC will utilize this time for reflection and self-education, as we all have the ability to grow and better ourselves in our roles as anti-racists. We will continue to share resources, articles, books and more to help continue the conversation and to help all of us move forward in the right direction.

During yesterdays roundtable discussion Willie Underwood lll, MD, MSci, MPH suggested two books:

Stamped from the Beginning - by Ibram X. Kendi
White Fragility - by Robin DiAngelo

You can listen to an interview of NPR with DiAngelo here: https://www.npr.org/2020/06/17/879136931/interrupt-the-systems-robin-diangelo-on-white-fragility-and-anti-racism

You may not think of yourself as racist, but Robin DiAngelo says that "nice white people" are still complicit in racist structures. DiAngelo has tips to help white people break from apathy, interrupt racist systems and commit to anti-racist practices.

Homelessness & COVID-19: A Merger of Two Epidemics

The National Institute for Health Care Management is hosting a webinar on June 18th from 1:00pm - 2:00pm on Homelessness & COVID-19: A Merger of Two Epidemics

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a spotlight on the homeless and home insecure population, highlighting the existing health challenges faced by this community and the additional risks posed by COVID-19. A new analysis estimates that homeless individuals infected by COVID-19 are two to four times as likely to require critical care and two to three times as likely to die compared to the general population. This webinar will look at the state of homelessness in the US and its critical impact on health and provide strategies to improve outcomes for homeless individuals both in the short and long term.

Population Health Collaborative Executive Director John Craik delivered water to our partners at Jericho Road Community Health Center for their COIVD-19 testing sites.

Jericho Road Community Health Center is looking for partners who can donate bags of food or bottles of water. They will be hosting more tent test sites and are looking for partners who have any additional resources to share, the majority of people who are coming to be tested are uninsured, or under-insured, and do not have a primary doctor. If you can help, or know of a program or partner that can, please contact [email protected]

It's time to thank another great neighbor! Thank you to Population Health Collaborative for donating bottled water for use at our COVID-19 community testing sites. With the weather getting hot, it's been so important for us to have water available for our staff and people waiting in line to be tested. Thank you for keeping us all hydrated!
