* Campus Speaker to Discuss Racial Bias in Health Care on October 24

The campus community is invited to attend the Honors Program common read speaking event, a presentation by author Linda Villarosa, on Monday, October 24 at 6:00pm in Eykamp Hall. Ms. Villarosa will be discussing her recently published book, Under the Skin: The Hidden Toll of Racism on American Lives and on the Health of Our Nation, which was the common read for Honors Program freshmen this year.
We hope you will join us for this enlightening presentation. If you’d like to read Under the Skin in advance, copies are on reserve at the library.

About the book and author:
Journalist Linda Villarosa is a contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine, where she covers race, inequality and public health.
Under the Skin is a landmark book that tells the full story of racial health disparities in America by revealing the toll racism takes on individuals and public health. In this book, Villarosa lays bare the forces in the American health-care system and in American society that cause Black people to “live sicker and die quicker” compared to their white counterparts. Study after study of medical settings show worse treatment and outcomes for Black patients. Black people live in dirtier, more polluted communities due to environmental racism and neglect from all levels of government. And, most powerfully, Villarosa describes the new understanding that coping with the daily scourge of racism ages Black people prematurely. Anchored by unforgettable human stories and offering incontrovertible proof, Under the Skin is, according to Oprah Daily, “perhaps one of the most important and thought-provoking publications of the year.”
Villarosa is a graduate of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, where she is an associate professor and journalist in residence. She also teaches journalism, English and Black Studies at the City College of New York.
