The American Academy of Pediatrics published a policy on the impact that racism has on child and adolescent health. It is well established that racism has a profound impact on the health status of children, adolescents, emerging adults, and their families. This webinar aims to explore racism’s impact on adolescent health and how pediatric providers can play a role in mitigating its harmful effects. Also, this webinar aims to explore health inequity through the social determinants of health lens, provide research on health inequities among adolescents and families, and provide tools and resources useful for providers and families.
