Racism: Science & Tools for the Public Health Professional

Now available as an eBook!

This important publication builds on the racial health equity work that public health advocates and others have been doing for decades. They have documented the existence of health inequities and have combatted health inequities stemming from racism. This book, which targets racism directly and includes the word squarely in its title, marks an important shift in the field's antiracism struggle for racial health equity. It is intended for use in a wide range of settings including health departments, schools, and in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors where public health professionals work. It will also benefit students still in training and will also serve as a practical reference text for courses and workshops. In this way, this book anticipates acting as a bridge connecting public health professionals, students, community members, as well as policymakers.

"This engrossing and challenging book provides a thorough assessment of the state of racism and health for expert and novice readers. While the authors illustrate there is much work to be done, they paint an optimistic picture of the everyday actions that all of us can take to promote equity." Doody's Review Service 96/100 4-stars.
