YCSC Grand Rounds: Equitable Access to a Quality Education to Improve Long-Term Outcomes

Yale Child Study Center

This session has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, with plans to reschedule during the fall 2024 semester.

Session Description

Education is considered one of the key social determinants of health given its relationship and correlation to other factors that impact health outcomes. This session will address education as both a process and a product that is not experienced equitably. Black and Latine students are more likely to attend schools in poverty, which often results in poorer academic outcomes for those students and generally poorer overall outcomes. Policy makers, schools, healthcare workers, and community organizations must work in concert with one another in order to make meaningful changes to ensure access to quality education for all students. The objectives for this session are to discuss:

  1. social determinants of health (SDoH), in particular educational attainment, and explain its significance to well-being.
  2. the disparities in education, including the overrepresentation of Black and Latine students in special education, and understand systemic discrimination.
  3. community-based organizations available to support under-resourced students and help them achieve an equitable education.

This will be a hybrid session, held live and in person from the Cohen Auditorium and simulcast via Zoom.
