Debora McDell-Hernandez (Senior Director of Public and Community affairs for Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York) and Dr. Celia McIntosh (DNP, RN,
FNP-C, PMHNP-BC, SCRN, CEN, CCRN, CNRN, president of the Rochester Regional Coalition Against Human Trafficking), will provide an overview of how systemic racism impacts the health and healthcare outcomes of Black women on Tuesday, June 15 at 7pm. They will focus on the historical long standing, deeply-rooted inequities related to social determinants of health, structural inequality, and system failures that continue to perpetuate the cycle of inadequate care. This program is part of a series highlighting participants of In This Moment: Revolution Reckoning Reparation, a project for ten teams of Black writers and photographers to profile ten Black leaders from across the city of Rochester published by Visual Studies Workshop and co-spon-sored by the Monroe County Library System, Rochester Public Library, Pittsford Public Library, and Webster Public Library.
