Join us for a special screening of Dean Thomas LaVeist's (School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine) documentary film, The Skin You're In, followed by a discussion with Dean LaVeist. Black Americans live sicker and die younger than any other ethnic group in the nation. Why is this happening? The reasons are complex and rooted in racism. The Skin You're In investigates this disturbing phenomenon from its various angles. We identify the problem, explain the causes and offer real solutions.
