Health Equity Film Series: The Deadliest Disease in America

February 28, 2024 - February 28, 2024 | 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

C160 & C170

View a film and join an enlightening discussion in the next Henry Ford + MSU Health Equity Film Series featuring “The Deadliest Disease in America.” This thought-provoking film, enhanced by expert-lead discussions, highlights unequal treatment based on the skin color rampant in the healthcare machine.  




Following the screening of the film, Renée Branch Canady, Ph.D., MPA, will moderate an engaging discussion on how bias and health inequity exist in modern-day healthcare. By the end of this event, participants will identify increased knowledge and state an example of historical factors and mitigation strategies that influence bias and health inequity in modern day healthcare settings.


Canady is recognized as a national thought leader in the areas of health inequities and disparities, cultural competence, and social justice. She has published and presented broadly on these topics and her passion for this work is evident in her personal, academic, and professional life.  


This event is free, and due to limited space registration is required. For in-person attendees, light refreshments will be provided. This event is also offered to participate via Zoom.
