This inaugural policy academy is part of an on-going series addressing the role policy plays in population health. This format is intentionally designed to culminate into a cross-sector focus group where participants’ input will guide and inform future policy academies. This academy will:
- Use arts, culture and other modalities to raise awareness and offer solutions about how policy and resource allocation often create or perpetuate health inequities and racial injustice;
- Explore the evidence linking structural racism with poor health, highlight the role of arts and culture in healing and promoting equity and social change; and,
- Foster a dialogue to advance policies and practices across a variety of sectors aimed at eliminating racism and promoting health and well-being equity in our
Ultimately, we hope the on-going series will help develop an action agenda for policy, practice and research to guide our collective efforts at the state and community level, and among researchers in Delaware
