She holds a bachelor’s degree from Howard University and a law degree from UC-Berkeley. Her book “Race and America’s Future” was published in 2010.

The event will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with lunch and a community discussion to follow the webinar. The event will include participation from health care and social services professionals, and individuals who are struggling to have their health care needs met.

The webinar is underwritten by a grant from the Colorado Trust, as an extension of its mission to improve health care access and affordability across the state. This is the first of four webinars planned on health-related topics.
