A new eBook, Racism: Science & Tools for the Public Health Professional, has been added to our collection. This resource aims to build on the racial health equity work of public health advocates. Major themes and concepts include health inequities stemming from racism, the public health field’s anti-racism struggle, scientific literacy and the engagement of communities in color in health research, addressing racism in cancer care, and minority group-specific experiences with healthcare.
The authors note that this book is intended for use “in a wide range of settings including health departments, schools, and in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors where public health professionals work. It will also benefit students still in training and will also serve as a practical reference text for courses and workshops.”
