About the webinar:
This presentation will explore findings of a recent review of health disparities research in the meat packing industry. A systematic and thorough review of the literature identified 60 articles that touched on health disparities areas such as: gender/sex, race/ethnicity, language/education, class, and nativity. Participants will review the results of the study and engage in a broader discussion about why we need to consider these underlying factors that contribute to the negative health of workers in the meat packing industry. We will also assess the lack of understanding of health disparities found in most of the literature.
