Disease & Disparity: Realities of the Uneven Playing Field of Public Health
Free, advance registration required! Illness is rarely a result of biology alone. Often overlooked, such factors as economic and immigration status, ethnicity, race, and housing also contribute to who gets sick – and who gets treatment. Join Deputy Commissioner for the NYC Division of Disease Control Demetre Daskalakis, MD MPH, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia University, Diana Hernández, PhD, and leading public health scholar Rupal Sanghvi, MPH to explore the fraught intersection of disease and disparity. Moderated by socio-medical historian Samuel Roberts, PhD, we will consider the attitudes, stigmatization, and even outbursts of violence surrounding disease and treatment, past and present.
