Women of Color and Health: Issues and Solutions

Cross, June; Weeks, Nia; Underhill, Kristen A.; Bootstaylor, Chloe Carmel

Discussion moderated by Professor Kristen Underhill, featuring Professor June Cross and Nia Weeks. Introduced by Chloe Bootstaylor.

This panel focuses on women of color in health, issues, and solutions. The session is inspired by Professor June Cross of the Columbia School of Journalism and her recent film, Wilhemina’s War, which follows the story of Wilhemina Dixon and depicts the obstacles that Americans with HIV/AIDS face in accessing not only adequate healthcare but also financial, infrastructural, and social support in their communities.
