Why is There More Funding for Police than Public Health? Questions & Actions for a Transformative Public Health
This webinar is part of the Translational Applications in Public Health mini-series, which is a collaboration between the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) and the Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences (NUCATS) Institute.

Across the nation, our governments invest billions of dollars in policing & carceral systems we know cause health inequities and then invest only a fraction of that for public health to address those inequities. This public health funding paradox has historical roots and demands new imaginative ways of thinking. This presentation will detail this funding paradox and identify actions for public health to help transform our current systems.
