Building an Anti-Racist Health Center: Virtual Learning Event

In February 2022, the Washington Association for Community Health brought together Dr. Benjamin Danielson and leaders from Washington FQHCs (federally-qualified health centers) for an engaging discussion about racism in healthcare and their personal experiences. (Recording in English & Spanish.)

Due to popular demand, the Association is welcoming presenters back again for an in-depth discussion on cultural affirmation and anti-racism for health center leadership with an emphasis on how to support staff members from an organizational level. 

WHEN: Tues. May 24, 2022, 9:00am – 11:00am PST



As a result of the learning event, attendees will be able to:

  • Apply strategies to identify and address issues of racism in health centers
  • Discuss how leaders can build culturally affirmative and anti-racist organizations from the workforce, leadership, and organizational levels
  • Recognize likely challenges and ways to overcome them
