Submitted by Alex Lenferna on

Please join us for the Benjamin Rabinowitz Symposium on Race, Health and Justice from 8.30am to 6.00pm on March 31 2017 at the HUB, Room 340, University of Washington in Seattle.

This cross-disciplinary symposium will bring together students, faculty, researchers and members of the public to discuss racial disparities in health and health care, and the broader social, political, economic and historical structures in which they occur. The symposium will also celebrate the official launch of The Health and Inequality Network (THINK), an interdisciplinary group of students and faculty interested in health equity.

The Keynote speaker will be Myisha Cherry of the Department of Philosophy, University of Illinois, Chicago, and Harvard University. Speakers include faculty and students from English, Medicine, Nursing, Philosophy, Public Health, Sociology, Social Work, and Political Science.

The Symposium is generously sponsored by The Benjamin Rabinowitz Endowment in Medical Ethics; the UW School of Public Health; the UW Department of Philosophy; and the UW Program on Values in Society.
