Your role in the movement to achieve global health equity


February 13

4 to 5:30PM SMC Campus Center, Elm Room B

621 West Lombard Street

Michelle Morse, MD, MPH will discuss the social and economic forces at the root cause of health inequities throughout the world. These inequities drive morbidity and mortality in tragically predictable ways that preferentially afflict the poor and marginalized. They are perpetuated by racism, sexism, economic policy prioritizing productivity and profit, and disregard for historical injustices. We can and must take action to address these root causes of ill health that we as a society have created and sustained. Our discussion will focus on why and how you should engage in the movement to achieve global health equity.

A reception will follow the talk. Register at umaryland.edu/islsi
