This special series features live webcasts of three sessions from the 2016 Public Health Law Conference.

Racial, ethnic and gender discrimination permeate the political, social and economic systems of our society. The resulting daily inequities range from overt systems, acts and mindsets of bias, to subtle, unconscious, yet discriminatory omissions and micro aggressions, creating legal and policy practices that jeopardize the health and well-being of a large percentage of the U.S. population. This session will examine strategies to address health inequities stemming from discriminatory practices that adversely impact women’s health and wellness; comprehensive trauma care for male survivors of violence; mental health and substance use disorder treatment; and access to health care for recently incarcerated individuals.
