About: Law and racism are intertwined, with legal tools bearing the potential to serve as instruments of oppression or equity. This symposium will explore the dual nature of health law, with attention to policing in the context of mental health, schools and substance use disorders; industry and the environment in the context of food advertising, tobacco regulation, worker safety and environmental racism; health care and research in the context of infant mortality, bias in medical applications of AI and diverse inclusion in research; and anti-racist teaching and practice in the context of building an inter-professional curriculum and medical-legal partnerships.
