Unnatural Causes Series
An acclaimed documentary series broadcast by PBS and now used by thousands of organizations around the country to tackle the root causes of our alarming socio-economic and racial inequities in health. The four-hour series crisscrosses the nation uncovering startling new findings that suggest there is much more to our health than bad habits, health care, or unlucky genes. The social circumstances in which we are born, live, and work can actually get under our skin and disrupt our physiology as much as germs and viruses. The series also features helpful discussion guide.

Social and Health Equity PH101 Dialogue Series
This series of training modules was created by Alameda County Public Health Department. Public health agencies and other organizations can use this series to train staff or other individuals. This approach draws on Paolo Freire’s theory of popular education, therefore, these modules are interactive and the training sessions attempt to bring forth the life experiences of participants for a more enriching learning experience. The training materials include main talking points that can help guide discussions. Here are the training modules:
  • Module I: Public Health History, Public Health System, Core Functions and 10 Essential Services
  • Module II: Cultural Competency & Cultural Humility
  • Module III: Undoing Racism
  • Module IV: Social & Health Equity
  • Module V: Community Capacity Building
Please note, however, each ACPHD training session is unique in composition, with different trainers/facilitators and staff participants. It has been Alameda County’s experience that each training session is distinctively shaped by individuals with diverse life experiences and perspectives. This means that discussions vary from group to group. For an overview of the modules and some lessons learned, please see this presentation.
