The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC) hosted this webinar on October 30, 2019 at 1:00 pm (60 minutes). You may claim CME credit here for your participation after the webinar has concluded through November 15, 2019. 

Educational Goals

This webinar will showcase multiple aspects of what it means to "lead with race and structural racism," particularly in the areas of capacity-building, organizational change, surveillance and evaluation, and programmatic implementation, in a tobacco control program. The webinar will demonstrate the importance of a racial justice approach in strengthening health equity strategies.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this activity, the participant should be able to:
  1. Develop a shared understanding of the levels of racism and racial equity as it pertains to health
  2. Explain one way using a leading with race framework can eliminate racial inequities and improve the health of all
  3. Describe two examples of how Massachusetts has begun to integrate a racial justice framework in to tobacco programming and research


This 60-minute webinar will address the following high-level topics. (More details can be found in the downloadable syllabus.)

  1. Capacity Building and Implementation
    In order to effectively implement a leading with race and racism approach, it’s essential to (1) normalize the conversation around racism; (2) build staff capacity to do racial justice work and; (3) work with partners in directly-affected communities.
    The implementation of specific racial justice metrics in program work plans across all content areas (e.g. cessation, youth engagement) strengthens and reinforces health equity strategies.
  2. Surveillance and Evaluation
    Using principles of leading with race and racism (including framing, data disaggregation and contextualization) with surveillance datasets can be used to identify and start to address racial inequities in tobacco.
    The use of a racial justice lens in the areas of surveillance and evaluation has helped guide programmatic change and shifted emphasis from downstream to upstream factors of health.
