On December 2, 2014, WGH co-sponsored a talk by Dr. Naomi Priest, an outstanding scholar from University of Melbourne and Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia. She was a visiting scholar at the Chan School in the fall working with Dr. David Williams in the Dept. of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Her talk was titled “Multi-media interventions to address racial bias among children & youth” and focused on her work in antiracism interventions with children, adolescents and young adults. She discussed a whole array of fascinating research, including a new study using an app to help young adults become more aware of the way implicit racism may be affecting their beliefs and interactions with marginalized communities in Australia. Co-sponsors of this event included the Black Student Health Organization, Student Government, Healthroots, Native American Students Organization, Response Action Committee for Equity (RACE), and the Women of Color Collective.
