Black Boston: Building Healthy Communities

Hosted by WBUR City Space + Boston University


Boston is home to some of the country’s leading community health centers and partners devoted to tackling health inequities. Yet even here race, ethnicity, and racism continue to adversely impact health, and COVID-19 has further revealed racial inequities. Where has Boston been successful? And what are the next steps to improve health outcomes, close persistent gaps, save lives, and transform the fields leading this work?


Panelists:

Vivien Morris, founder and chairperson, Mattapan Food & Fitness Coalition

Sandra Cotterell, CEO, Codman Square Health Center

Dr. Thea James, vice president of mission, Boston Medical Center


Moderator: Yvette Cozier, associate professor of epidemiology, Boston University

ABOUT THE BLACK BOSTON SERIES

Hosted by Boston University Initiative on Cities, the Boston University Office of Diversity & Inclusion and WBUR CitySpace, the Black Boston Series was created to provide a forum in which to examine our city’s progress toward inclusive access, equity, and opportunity—and where we still fall short. Each event will feature transformative Black leaders from across Greater Boston.
