Public Health Justice & Planning – Tanya McGee & Kiara Van Brackle

Kiara Van Brackle and Tanya McGee led a panel discussion on Public Health Justice and Planning as part of a week-long conference on Planning for Racial Justice. Kiara and Tanya shared their personal and professional experiences to highlight the importance of seeing public health from an intersectional social justice lens.

Tanya and Kiara spoke with HMM’s Spencer to break down some of the larger concepts they spoke on like systemic racism, intersectionality, as well as implicit and explicit bias, and related the topics to public health and health disparities. Kiara also discussed one tool that anyone can use to identify their own racial bias, the Implicit Association Test which is available at
