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?

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.
