Blog Update: Keep this conversation alive!

In this post, we call out for "Birds of a feather" to join us at DrupalCon, which has come and gone. However, this conversation remains relevant to our political condition and relevant to our work! Our scientific and government entities must continue to increasingly acknowledge racism as a public health threat. We believe that harnessing the power of data within our own communities is a path to the change that we want to see. Please help us keep this post and the discussion it provokes alive and circulating!

Original Post

The struggle to take seriously the impact of racism on public health during the covid-19 crisis spotlights the importance of health communities of practice and their need to have high-quality, data-driven discussions.

Environmental racism was forced into the national conversation by Flint, Michigan years ago and COVID-19 has made long-standing problems of racism in healthcare provision impossible to ignore.  The rebellion against police repression, which started in Minneapolis, is itself a reaction to the public health issues caused by policing. This reaction was predictable, and Minneapolis resident D.A. Bullock, indeed, predicted it.

So, moving forward...

How do we have data-informed conversations effectively within our communities?

How do we expand them to include more health professionals and community members from outside of what is currently recognized as the healthcare industry?

We need resolute answers to both of these questions.

Thanks to a client giving us a shout out, Agaric has come to acknowledge our experience building for health communities and the role that we are able to take in this conversation. We would love to talk and learn with others more deeply about these issues.  We're hosting a "Birds of a Feather" (people interested in the same topic coming together) at DrupalCon Global today at 3:15 Eastern Time to talk about facilitating discussion among healthcare practitioners, researchers, and the public.

Here are some more questions to get you thinking!

What are the next steps for healthcare workers and researchers? What are the next steps for any person who cares about our communities? How do we move important conversations into the public realm sustainably? The stakes for both well-informed and broad-based discussion are clearer than ever.  We know pressure, policy, and practice are what make change; what is our role?

Please leave your comments even if you can't join us today!
