The workshop will be offered by the Racial Equity Institute (REI) out of Greensboro, NC, in collaboration with the School Health Institute for Education and Leadership Development (SHIELD) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health School Health Services. 

The goal of this workshop is to establish a foundational understanding of how race-based structural inequities impact school health access and outcomes. This foundation will provide school nurses and others with a basic understanding of how racism is structural in nature and what that means for their work, their schools, and the communities they serve.

With its focus on equity and diverse populations, this course enables educators to meet ESL (RETELL) professional development requirements in accordance with 603 CMR 44.06(1)(a).
