The Intersection of Racism, Religion and Mental Health in Clinical Care

This is a past event.

Healthcare and Religion Lecture Series

John Welch, MDiv, PhD
Theologian, Medical Ethicist, Community Engagement Consultant

Abstract: Stigmatized groups and particularly African Americans have for centuries been victims of chronic racialized trauma resulting from a variety of social determinants. This trauma has had negative health implications including mental health challenges that can lead to complex patient/provider interactions and often leave their need for palliative therapies unaddressed. This talk will address how religious and spiritual beliefs affect African American patients’ seeking/not-seeking mental healthcare, and how religious/faith institutions have themselves perpetuated racism.

Offered via Zoom, registration required.  Please register here.

Tuesday, November 2 at 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
