How We Heal: Confronting Health Inequity with Structural Competency Conference & Training
Sat. March 9th | 8am-5pm | UC Riverside (HMNSS 1501) More info & registration at howweheal.ticketleap.com/rsvp
Why do health disparities persist? How can we address them at their roots?
Structural Competency is the capacity to recognize and respond to health outcomes as the downstream effect of social, political, and economic structures. We invite health professionals, scholars, students, community organizers, and anyone interested in health for all to gain perspectives and skills on advocacy at the bedside and beyond.
Our speakers include co-editors of NEJM's new series of case studies on Social Medicine and have been featured on NPR. They will address local and global issues at the intersection of health and social inequity, spanning racism, immigration, environmental injustice, labor, homelessness, LGBTQ discrimination, incarceration, addiction, and more.
Keynotes by Helena Hansen, MD, PhD (Assistant Professor of Psychiatry & Anthropology at NYU and research psychiatrist at New York State Office of Mental Health's Nathan Kline Institute, who coined "Structural Competency”) and Seth Holmes, MD, PhD(Co-Director of the Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, Co-Director of the MD/PhD Track in Medical Anthropology at UC Berkeley, and author of Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies: Migrant Farmworkers in the United States).
Panelists from Doctors for Global Health, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Physicians for Human Rights, National Nurses United, Warehouse Worker Resource Center, Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice/SoCal ACLU, and TruEvolution
Training led by the Bay Area Structural Competency Working Group
Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments provided Free for all UCR students and UCR-affiliated medical residents $10 for General Admission and other students and residents $25 for Health Professionals & Faculty
