The OPHA Epidemiology & Biostatistics Section presents: 
Decolonizing Public Health Research and Data Forum

Three of Oregon’s public health leaders will discuss how they are working to decolonize and indigenize research and data across the continuum of public health. What can the public health community learn from the decolonizing approach? How can we analyze and communicate about data in a way that speaks to the experiences and worldviews of communities of color? Join us for the Decolonizing Public Health Research and Data Forum, presented by the Oregon Public Health Association's Epidemiology & Biostatistics Section!
