How can a National Register nomination become a community pathway to address disparities? What are the health implications of documenting and protecting significant sites from the Natchez Civil Rights Movement? How can and will these protections affect the social determinants of health, and how can a community-led health impact assessment influence these decisions and which sites are included?

Please join Project HEAL (Health, Equity, Art, Learning) Natchez for this free workshop to understand and get involved with the upcoming Health Impact Assessment (HIA) focused on the Historic Natchez Foundation’s National Register of Civil Rights nomination project. This HIA is administered by the Mississippi State Department of Health with a grant from the Health Impact Project, a partnership of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trusts.

Facilitator: Jimmy Dills, Georgia Health Policy Center

Guest Speakers:
Emily Bever, Pew Charitable Trusts Health Impact Project;
Daniel Sarpong, PhD, Xavier University;
Theo Edmonds, IDEAS xLab

At 5pm, please join a reception and public launch for the National Register of Civil Rights nomination and HIA projects with remarks from Mimi Miller, Executive Director of the Historic Natchez Foundation. A selection of HNF civil rights era photographs will be on display. Reception is free and open to the public. This HNF nomination project is funded through an African American Civil Rights Grant from the National Park Service.
