About this Webinar

The tobacco industry wrote the playbook for all other industries that rely on predatory practices that harm human, environmental and ecological health. That playbook leads to premature death and reduced quality of life for communities, particularly those already experiencing health and economic disparities. As such, efforts to advance policies to end the sale of flavored tobacco products have social and environmental justice implications. Maine Public Health Association joined with dozens of other health, education, and business partners on a multi-year campaign to end the sale of all flavored tobacco products in Maine. We’ve made progress, but the work continues.


What you'll learn

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the toll of tobacco use in Maine
  • Describe flavored tobacco products
  • Describe environmental impacts of tobacco use and waste
  • Describe disproportionate harms of tobacco industry practices and the social justice implications

    Assistant Professor, University of Texas

  • Lailea Noel is an assistant professor at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work. Noel’s research investigates the social and economic conditions that contribute to lower cancer treatment utilization and higher mortality rates in marginalized communities, particularly communities of color, and communities within residentially segregated urban and rural neighborhoods. She has a passion for conducting community-based participatory research and has a wealth of experience engaging communities, social scientists and medical professionals in such research partnerships. Her research interest and approach are informed by the two decades she spent as an oncology social work administrator at prestigious organizations — including the American Cancer Society and University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center — prior to pursuing her Ph.D. During her doctoral studies at Washington University in St. Louis, Noel participated in a five-year, community-based participatory research project in an area with high rates of poverty and the worst cancer mortality rates in metropolitan St. Louis. Her dissertation work, supported by an American Cancer Society Doctoral Training Grant in Oncology Social Work, explored the experiences of African American women in St. Louis, who had not started treatment for breast cancer six-months to two years following diagnosis. Since she joined the NYU Silver faculty in 2016, and was the 2018-19 Donald D. Harrington Faculty Fellow at The University of Texas at Austin.

About this Webinar

Maine's aged building stock creates wide spread health challenges including asthma, exposures to toxins in building materials, stress in physical discomfort and vulnerability in extreme weather and anxiety of about heating and cooling costs. The barriers to retrofitting are multi-fold, the rewards of retrofitting combine the health benefits with carbon and reduction as part of our path to our carbon goals. Equitable approaches to improving the built environment are critical. passivhausMAINE is exploring bundling funding sources for systemic approaches to whole building renovation. We are preparing the case for cross/multi department communication and systems to ease the funding barriers and structure scalable retrofits across the state through pilot projects in Freeport and Lewiston, Maine. 


What you'll learn

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the potential for wide scale retrofits through multi-agency funding approaches.
  • Analyse the comprehensive benefits of building retrofits to physical and mental health and the corollary benefits of carbon and energy reduction. 
  • Explore the overlapping issues of housing, gender, racial, education and economic justice.

About this Recording

When looking at the disproportionate impact in health disparities on communities of color, the black community's experience can be an indicator of what is happening to all marginalized communities.

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • List four ways in which Black and Brown communities have been disadvantaged more than white communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Name three health impacts of not having stable and safe housing

  • Name three ways that the Justice System can reduce racial injustice

About this Workshop

What becomes possible when we ask:

What would a world without racism look like?
What would it be like if quality healthcare were accessible to all?
How can we embrace and support wellbeing in all its manifestations?
What could healthy communities look like…and accomplish?

These are some of the questions we continuously ask ourselves in our work at the Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network.  The Network commissioned a film that will serve as a centerpiece to meaningful discussions and action on health equity across Western Massachusetts and New England. MOSAIC amplifies the voices of people working within and for our communities of color toward equity, justice, and representation in all aspects of life, including healthcare.

Join us for a Watch Party and Conversation of MOSAIC: Conversations on Racism and Health in Western Massachusetts/New England . Highlighted in the film are the Women of Color Health Equity Collective, Estoy a Aqui, BRIDGE members in the Berkshires and the Okteteau Cultural Center. For more information before the webinar visit wmhenfilm.org.

This event was cohosted with the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).
