Anti-Racism Online Learning

Location: Zoom

Final May 14 Webinar Graphic Photo 2

Join us via Zoom video conferencing on Thursday, May 14 at 1 pm for The Impact of COVID-19 in Communities of Chicago.

The Anti-Racism Task Force presents an online conversation with Bishop Sally Dyck, Dr. LaMenta "Sweetie" Conway, Deputy Chief of Medicine for the Illinois Department of Health, and Dr. Edwin Mandieka, an internal medicine resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and a physician mentor for I Am Abel Foundation. They will discuss their experience and insights on how Christians can live out our love of neighbor during these difficult times when healthcare access is unequal and front-line workers are vulnerable. 

To learn more about Dr. Sweetie and her work as founder of the I Am Abel Foundation in developing socially conscious medical scholars who use the platform of medicine to create equity, close gaps and create safer, healthier communities, click here. (Dr. Sweetie is married to Rev. Dr. Jacques Conway, Chicago Southern District Superintendent.)


A Zoom link will be emailed after registration.
