The Student Pre-Health Committee (SPHC) and CPHA invite you to a Health Equity Symposium every fall. The focus in Fall 2019 was on intersections between health and dimensions of life and human experience that impact health and health care outcomes.
Keynote and breakout sessions. Please read about the breakout sessions below.
“POSITIONALITY: GROUNDING EQUITY AND INTERSECTIONALITY WORK”
Keynote: Quinton Cotton
Achieving health equity requires an understanding of differences in life opportunities and outcomes as the product of values, beliefs, narratives, policies and other influencers in a society. Positionality allows us to examine spectrums of difference, such as identity, and refine our methods for achieving health equity.
Keynote at 5:30 pm (Humanities 1121)
Breakout sessions (6:30-8 pm)
Health is more than the absence of disease. Health is about jobs and unemployment, education, the environment, and all of those things that go into making us healthy.
