The field of public health increasingly focuses on health equity and population health outcomes. While systemic factors are major drivers of inequities, what is the role of the individual? This recorded webinar will introduce the idea of implicit bias and how it is relevant to all public health professionals, regardless of discipline or role in an agency. Participants will learn key definitions, examine data showing the implications of implicit bias in public health, and discuss some strategies to prevent it. Ultimately, no matter how well-intended, we all have some biases we can address to improve our positive impact on population health and on each other.
