The American Academy of Pediatrics published a policy on the impact that racism has on child and adolescent health. As pediatric providers continue to identify, racism is a social determinant of health that has a profound impact on the health status of children, adolescents, emerging adults, and their families. This webinar will be presented by the co-author of the AAP Policy on racism, Dr. Jacqueline Dougé.

The goal and learning objectives of this webinar is to:

1. Define Racism: The Problem
2. Discuss racism as a core social determinant of health
3. Provide guidance on addressing the effects of racism on children and adolescents
