2023 Intersectionality of Race and Health Training

Meeting Dates: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2023
Meeting Time and Location: 



In this half-day, virtual training, participants will begin to explore the important intersection of race and how it intersects with health. Many times, race and health are discussed separately, but this training dives into the important interconnected nature of social categorizations, such as race, class, and gender, as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. Participants will explore these topics and their impact on the health of Michigan’s populations of color.

Intended Audience: All interested persons are welcome to apply to attend update training courses. Applicants who are employed and/or volunteering at a State-funded agency may receive priority for course placement.

Participation Requirements: In order to receive proof of attendance, training participants are required to log into the virtual platform on time, attend the entire training, and have microphone and camera access. Attendance log-in and out times will be monitored. Do not plan to arrive late or leave early. Late arrival is considered logging into the training fifteen (15) minutes after the start of the training. Late arrivals will not be permitted to enter the virtual training and will result in a no-call/no-show for training attendance; supervisors will be notified.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations or modifications must be made no later than two (2) business days prior to the training date. Applicants who are unable to attend any trainings for which they are registered must contact the Training Unit at MDHHS-BHSPtraining@michigan.gov. Failure to do so will classify the participant as a no-call/no-show and may result in lost priority when registering for future trainings.
