Religion: Webinar addresses racism in health care

The European Times News aims to cover news that matter to increase the awareness of citizens all around geographical Europe.
        BLOOMFIELD – The Office for Catholic Social Justice of the Archdiocese of Hartford will continue its webinar series on Wednesday from 7 to 8 p.m.

The “Open Wide Our Hearts” series will address “The Influence of Racism in Our Health Care System.” Tabbed as one of the wealthiest and healthiest states in the nation, Connecticut has some of the best doctors and hospitals and is arguably the health insurance capital of the world.

Yet Connecticut also has some of the greatest health disparities in the U.S., the OCSJ contends. Guest speakers will be Vernette Townsend, who has a master’s of science in nursing, and Marlene D. Harris, both of St. Justin-St. Michael Parish in Hartford, and Samantha Lew, of Health Equity Solutions.

Participation is free but registration is required. For information and registration, call 860-242-5573, email info.ocsjm@aohct.org or visit catholicsocialjustice.org.
