Infant Mortality and Racism in Chicago: Follow-Up

In late April 2010, the UIC MCHP and the UIC Mid-America Public Health Training Center hosted a workshop session on Infant Mortality and Racism with Laurin Kasehagen, MA, PhD.  We had tremendous audience interest in engaging in a follow-up discussion to address these issues in Chicago/Illinois.  A large number of audience participants is scheduled to meet again by phone in late June.  In the meantime, if you have thoughts about how to proceed or any thoughts about infant mortality and racism, please feel free to respond to this posting.  We welcome any and all comments/thoughts/ideas as this will help stimulate our discussion in June.

If you would like to take a look at Dr. Kasehagen’s presentation, please visit the following posting:
