2011 Health Equity Webinar

This webinar will focus on how to evaluate policy, system, and environmental (PSE) change strategies with a health equity focus.

Williams, a professor of public health at the Harvard School of Public Health, is also a professor of African and African American studies and an affiliate of the Sociology Department at Harvard University.

His research has enhanced understanding of the complex ways in which race, racial discrimination, socioeconomic status, and religious involvement can affect physical and mental health.
