Virtual Screening of The Color of Care – Dec 5-12

Posted by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) on November 22, 2022

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) hosted a virtual screening of the documentary, The Color of Care in October. The film chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare. COVID-19 exposed what they have long understood and lived: they do not receive the same level of care. Produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and directed by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning director Yance Ford, the film traces the origins of racial health disparities to practices that began during slavery and continue today. Using moving personal testimony, expert interviews, and disturbing data the film reveals the impact of racism on health, serving as an urgent warning of what must be done to save lives.

After the virtual screening, we invited our community and academic partners to share their lived experiences and raise a platform for action. CCPH hopes to be a global leader convening voices of the community, the marginalized, and the underrepresented in medical research and healthcare to advance health equity.

Join us for our second virtual screening of the documentary, The Color of Care, brought to you by our partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program. We are starting on December 5 (6:00 AM ET) and ending on December 12 (11:59 PM ET).
