Barrington Appointed Director of ARCH – Center for Anti-Racism in Community Health

Posted: 6/25/2021 ()

Congratulations to CSDE Affiliate Wendy Barrington for her new position at the School of Public Health as the inaugural Director of the Center for Anti-Racism in Community Health (ARCH). This important and extraordinary initiative at the School of Public Health will be well-served by Dr. Barrington’s vision for, and practice of, dismantling racism and racist institutions impacting population health.

In this new role, she will hold joint appointments in Health Services, Epidemiology, and Child, Family, and Population Health Nursing, contingent upon approval by several review bodies, including the SPH Faculty Council and the UW Board of Regents. A hallmark of Wendy’s approach is to co-create, co-design, and co-operate to realize a shared strategy to maximize anti-racist impact for community health promotion and a research agenda to support its implementation. In that spirit, please look forward to a series of listening sessions and opportunities for engagement to inform the ARCH Center priorities and structure starting Fall 2021.
