It’s a new year and Black Talk is taking up a long-standing crisis: racialized healthcare.

Our guest, Dayna Bowen Matthew, JD, Ph.D., will talk to us about the racial, ethnic, economic, and social determinants and disparities in America’s healthcare system. Dean Matthew is currently the Dean and Harold H. Greene Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School in the nation’s capital. Dean Matthew was a CU law school professor and vice dean, a member of the Center for Bioethics Humanities on the Anschutz Medical Center campus, and held a joint appointment at the Colorado School of Public Health and co-founded the Colorado Health Equity Project.

We will learn how Dean Matthew’s intersectional approach to tackling racial inequalities in health, housing, and education, conspire and inspired the content of her two books, Just Medicine: A Cure for Racial Inequality in American Healthcare (2018) and Just Health: Treating Structural Racism to Heal America (2022).

Dean Matthew will be in Colorado on February 25, 2023, as the featured guest of Sister-to-Sister, an international network of professional African American women. The 6:00-10:00pm event will take place at History Colorado, 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203.
