Racism is a comprehensive public health issue, and a key social determinant of physical and mental health    among many in our community. Particularly in response to recent events, professional organizations have acted to identify, and then diminish, institutional racism within the field of medicine. One approach addresses implicit bias within clinical and training domains. Please join us as Fanisha Porter, MD from Mercer Medicine, and Nisha Shah, MD and Matthew Jandrisevits, PhD from the Medical College of Wisconsin, discuss anti-implicit bias efforts, particularly within the field of Psychiatry, and invite conversation about ongoing collaborative opportunities to address this issue in support of public health and well-being.

About this Webinar

MSMC's new monthly webinar series, "Meet Your Milwaukee” will feature MSMC members and partners who are helping make Milwaukee County a healthier and safer community.

This episode will feature Greg Stadter, MPH, Program Director at Milwaukee Health Care Partnership, and will focus on the importance of the flu vaccine and community outreach.

While flu vaccinations are important every year, it is even more so this year to help minimize respiratory disease and lower healthcare utilization during the COVID pandemic.  In 2019, rates of flu vaccination in Milwaukee were lower than the statewide average, and significant racial disparities persist. Starting in July, the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership has facilitated a multi-sector workgroup aiming to increase Milwaukee County’s flu vaccination rate in 2020, with representation from health systems, FQHCs, local public health departments, retail and academic pharmacy, insurance and local and state government.  Please join us as Greg Stadter with the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership outlines the workgroup’s progress and strategies, and solicits feedback from MSMC members on how to increase flu vaccination rates this year.
