WSU Applebaum to host second dialogue on racism Oct. 13
The Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences invites its students, faculty and staff to participate in a second dialogue on racism, exploring pressing issues and possible solutions. The event takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 13, from 4-6 p.m. on Zoom.
"Meaningful conversations about racism and the Black Lives Matter movement must remain at the forefront of our priorities. As a college, we are determined to keep up our momentum and take action for change," said WSU Applebaum Interim Dean Cathy Lysack.
"Our June dialogue brought student voices to the forefront and gave our entire community the chance to share our experiences," said WSU Applebaum Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Mary Clark. "We listened – and we were listened to – bringing some comfort, solidarity, and hope for the future."
Once again, participants will have the opportunity to listen and speak in smaller breakout groups facilitated by WSU Applebaum community members with participation from the Wayne State Office of Diversity and Inclusion.This dialogue series was organized by Dr. Clark and WSU Chief Diversity Officer Marquita Chamblee.
"Racial disparities touch every facet of our work as health practitioners and influence the ultimate well-being of patients in our care. We are determined to lead the way in alleviating inequality," Lysack said.
