Speaker: Daniel S. Goldberg, JD, PhD

Health equity and antiracist work starts with history. It is not possible to counter structural violence and racism without understanding historical patterns of oppression, domination, and subordination. Unfortunately, public health as an institution has played a central global role in advancing medical & scientific racism as part of a colonial project.

ColoradoSPH faculty, leadership, staff, and students are invited to join us for the first session in a new Inclusive Excellence Series: Histories of Structural Racism in U.S. Public Health, on April 19th from 1:00-2:30.

This interactive session will equip learners with the tools to describe such histories, as well as to begin to unpack the implications for the present and future of public health.

This session is being offered exclusively to ColoradoSPH faculty, staff, and students.

Daniel S. Goldberg is trained as an attorney, a historian of medicine, and a public health ethicist. His current research agenda in law, policy, and bioethics focuses on:

- social determinants of health
- public health policy and chronic illness
- health inequities
- stigma

In addition, he maintains an active research program in the history of medicine, and focuses primarily on two topics in 19th century America: the history of medical imaging (especially X-rays) and the history of pain without lesion. His doctoral dissertation addressed the undertreatment of pain in the U.S., and he has been actively writing, teaching, and speaking on the subject of chronic pain since 2000.
