Webinar 8: Racism as a Determinant of Health

On July 5, we heard from Dr Charlotte Loppie, Professor in the School of Public Health and Social Policy, Faculty of Human and Social Development at the University of Victoria, and Director of the Centre for Indigenous Research and Community-Led Engagement (CIRCLE), in our eighth Cultural Safety & Humility Action Series webinar.

How does racism function as a social determinant of Indigenous peoples’ health? How does racism shape good health for some and poor health for others? What does racism look like in our health system? In attempting to reduce the harms of racism for Indigenous peoples, we must understand it’s complex roots in Canadian society, the pathways it travels in our systems and institutions and the ways it manifests in our relationships. Dr. Loppie presents on these social determinants in this webinar.
