A Culture of Health and a culture of embedded racism cannot co-exist. The TRHT framework depicts a comprehensive approach to addressing racism as both a belief system that’s embedded and a structural legacy that requires a collective effort to overcome.

a) An intergenerational and diverse cohort experience with a mix of virtual and in-person sessions;
b) An initial $30,000 award for your participation in the program and an additional $35,000 in flexible funding to advance the participant’s work upon meeting related program requirements (total of $65,000);

d) Coaching to build participants’ capacity, assist with strategy planning, and professional development goals;
