What’s Next: Global Health Here at Home
April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
6 medical and public health professionals will share their stories on the challenge of providing health care in the harsh social and political realities of our time.
Follow their quests to serve their patients and communities from own backyard in Brooklyn to sub-Saharan Africa, the capital of post-earthquake Haiti, Nepal and more. Hear about their confrontations with poverty, natural disasters, racism, mass incarceration, and other systemic barriers to successful health care delivery. Hear how far they’ve come – and how much further we have left to go.
See event website for more info, including speaker bios. Happy Hour at The Bell House to follow the event. Donations will be accepted for The Anne Kastor Brooklyn Free Clinic, an entirely student-run branch of SUNY Downstate Medical Center that has been providing free primary health care to uninsured people in Brooklyn since 2007.
