A group of public health registrars worked with the Faculty to host a well-attended online anti-racism event on 29 September 2020.
After a welcome from Fatai Ogunlayi, Beth Smout, Helen Johnston and FPH President Professor Maggie Rae, delegates heard a keynote address from Professor Kevin Fenton and a plenary session from Dr Nisreen Alwan. There were breakout sessions filled with rich and challenging conversation hosted by a number of our Specialty Registrars and Dr Samia Latif.
Presentations from the day are available here:
- Embedding anti-racism in public health practice
Professor Kevin Fenton
- Antiracism in public health: (my) reflections on language and actions
Dr Nisreen Alwan
At the close of the day FPH's new Equality and Diversity Special Interest Group was launched. The Group look forward to drawing on the inspiring conversations heard throughout the day to drive forward the anti-racism agenda.
