History and Health Events

We are creating a community that recognizes and embraces diverse backgrounds, identities and lived experiences. We recognize that longstanding inequalities in treatment – deeply and historically rooted – produce adverse health outcomes. We are following a thoughtful process to understand our institutional history, contribute to the healing process and create a body of knowledge for generations to come in order to better position us to produce and sustain meaningful change. We will fearlessly accept criticism and continuously learn from past shortcomings and mistakes with transparency and humility, as expressed in our VCU Health Diversity, Equity and Inclusion statement. 

Credentialing opportunities

Participants of the program have the opportunity to earn up to two Foundational level digital badges (History and Health: Racial Equity and Racial Equity and History and Health: Equitable Access to Care), satisfy VCU Health System DEI learning requirements, and receive VCU Health continuing education credit.

It only takes 4 to 5 hours. Here's how you earn it:

Complete a minimum of four History and Health learning opportunities, which can be any combination of events and online learning modules. Learners who complete online learning modules must submit the Reflection Activity, which includes a form with basic biographical information (e.g., name, department) and a response to one of three prompts. Your response must be a minimum of 250 words.
