The presenters supported by CUNY's Black Race and Ethnic Studies Initiative grant awards will share their approaches for creating student health internship experiences addressing racial health inequities impacting marginalized communities in New York City. Reducing racial health inequity is a broad goal that requires action at many levels, and many organizations are developing interventions to improve outcomes for patient populations and communities. The panelist will share the model(s) used by them to educate the students pursuing degrees in public health and health sciences on the impact of racial and ethnic inequities on the health of historically underrepresented communities. Through internship experiences focused on health disparities, students gain access to communities in New York City that reflect the challenges and health inequities across the nation. These experiences provide them with opportunities to promote racial health equity on one hand and on the other, prepare them for their career in the healthcare field.
