PRIME: Workshops

The PRIME Guide includes three workshops used in PRIME that promote an understanding of practices that support institutional racism and interventions to help eliminate racial disparities in infant mortality.

The PRIME model draws upon the following effective and established health equity training approaches:

Undoing Racism™ Community Organizing Workshop

This workshop is a signature program of The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond. It is designed to educate, challenge and empower people to dismantle the racist structures that hinder effective social change.

Health Equity & Social Justice Workshop

This training was designed to illuminate racism, classism, and other types of oppression as root causes of health inequity. This workshop is connected with the Health Equity and Social Justice Initiative of the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO).

Native American History, Culture & Core Values Workshop

This training was provided in collaboration with the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan. It introduces the history and culture of Michigan’s Native Americans and the impact of these factors on the lives and health of Native Americans today.
