This research builds on a theoretical understanding of how community-based organizational structures and practices can advance health and well-being.

Dr. Mindy Fullilove, writer, social psychiatrist, and professor of Urban Policy & Health at The New School: A University in New York City, will present how psychiatry has often turned to the arts for insights into the workings of human character. She has found that the Korean art form of K-Drama offers extraordinary insights into the question of the person in the context of their times. This talk will discuss some of the insights offered by the popular K-Drama, Twenty-Five Twenty-One, about two young people whose lives were upended by economic crisis.
