Health Equity Foundations for the African American Population
In this learning session, we will define terms that are essential to the discussion around health equity as well as the roots of how inequities were formed in African American communities.  We will also journey into the African American population and the impact of disparities, before ending in what roles we can play in prevention to help create equity.

This Learning Session will be formatted as a 45-minute presentation followed by a 45-minute facilitator-led discussion.

By the end of this learning session, participants will be able to:
Discover how health disparities and other inequities play a role in behavioral health and substance use/misuse of the African American Population
Define terminology linked to the discussion of health equity
Describe the role of cultural competence and cultural humility
