« Back to the History and Health: Racial Equity Symposium

The VCU Office of Health Equity will host The Color of Care film screening, panel discussion and reception on September 27 from 4-7 p.m., at the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) at the Markel Center, 601 W Broad St, Richmond, VA 23220.

About the film

The documentary from executive producer, Oprah Winfrey, chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare in the United States and how COVID-19 has exposed the tragic consequences of this inequity.

Panel discussion

Dr. Carlos Smith, Director, Diversity, Ethics and Inclusion at the VCU School of Dentistry, will lead a panel discussion following the film. Light refreshments and fellowship will be available immediately following the program.

Meet your panelists


This event, co-sponsored by VCU Health and the VCU School of Dentistry, is free and open to the community, but space is limited. Registration is required and you can select the option to attend during the checkout process for the History and Health: Racial Equity Symposium or register for the event separately.

We encourage everyone to attend the screening in person; however, if that is not an option, a virtual viewing will be available. We will provide a link in advance of the screening event to all registrants.
