New! PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP


Browse Schedule

To advance health equity in Texas, we must address racism as a public health priority.

It’s Time Texas invites you to be among a limited number of health champions in our Pre-Conference Workshop, where together we will deepen our understanding and sharpen our ability to name and discuss structural racism as a critical skill.

If you’re ready to develop your skills to change thinking, attitudes and behaviors in addressing health disparities you’ll want to join us for this half-day workshop.

No matter where you are in this journey, this space is designed for learners at all levels.
