Arizona Telemedicine Program Webinar | Changing the Paradigm: Who Tells Our Story, Shapes Our Destiny

2:00 pm to 3:30 pm

Join the National REACH Coalition in collaboration with the Arizona Telemedicine Program, the Southwest Telehealth Resource Center, and the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health for a FREE Webinar.

Changing the Paradigm: Who Tells Our Story, Shapes Out Destiny

Historically, in America, African American, Latinx, Native American, Asian American Pacific Islander and Alaskan Native communities have had their stories mostly told by those from outside their communities, thus co-opting their history and experience, providing an inauthentic and incorrect narrative. The result is a shaping of the community’s prospects and well-being by others. These last three years of COVID have shone a harsh spotlight making this painfully clear.

This webinar will focus on how the African American community, through the process reclaiming their history, confronts oppressive structures, promotes and supports healing and resilience and shapes their destiny.

This UArizona COM-T Spark Lecture approved for 1.5 DEI Credits.

Made possible by the National REACH Coalition with funding support from the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network of Morehouse School of Medicine and with technical support from the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth, Office of Health Information Technology, Health Resources and Services Administration (U1U42527).

To request any disability-related accommodations for this event please contact the event coordinator at least three business days prior to the event.
