First broadcast on public television more than 15 years ago, RACE – The Power of an Illusion has become one of the most widely viewed documentaries in American history, and it remains timely and relevant today. The series asks a question so basic it is rarely raised: what is this thing called race? Many of our conventional assumptions, particularly about race being biologically-based, are wrong, yet the consequences of racism are very real. Join us on Feb. 6 for an open forum featuring producers of the series and UC Berkeley faculty discussing the evolution and impact of our ideas about race, then and now. Reception to follow.

NAATPN, Inc., in conjunction with the National Medical Association, the NAACP and the Southeast Health Equity Council, is pleased to host a national conference to address the state of health in America and to outline a platform to promote equity in African American communities. On September 11- 13, 2018, NAATPN, Inc. will host the first ever State of Black Health National Conference in Atlanta, GA at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta.

The State of Black Health National Conference will address current health, economic, and social justice disparities impacting African Americans and outline a national policy platform to address those disparities. Tobacco use kills more than 45,000 African Americans annually and chronic diseases, including HIV/AIDS, continue to disproportionately impact African Americans. In addition, workforce development and the attainment of livable wages remains a primary concern in most African American urban, and rural communities. Current conditions in the U.S. aren’t conducive to positive health outcomes in African American communities; in fact, unless a new policy agenda is developed and implemented, the pursuit of African American health equity could remain out of reach. Registration is open now.
