Carrie Waterman Awarded UC Global Health Institute Grant on Food Justice & Health Equity
The pilot UC Global Health Institute (GHI) Center of Expertise (COE) will host a Virtual Webinar Series May-December 2021 on Food Justice & Health Equity with interviews and discussions from researchers and activists spanning California, the US, Brazil, the Caribbean, and Africa which will be compiled on a real-time One Health Food Justice website. The COE will make transformative shifts to address and resolve systemic racism within global health through a collaborative and codesign process. As an incubator and launchpad, we will integrate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in UC GHI by linking global health leaders with researchers and communities focused on food security and sovereignty. The Center will provide educational & professional growth at the intersection of race, justice, global health, and food systems.
