Description

The concept of health disparities is not new. Since at least the 16th century, politicians, ‘scientists’, and colonial authorities have explored divergences in the health of different indigenous, colonial, and often slave populations. Early medical journals in the United States were filled with descriptions of the poor health of African slaves. Yet, it was only in the past several decades that this long-known reality has been transformed into a ‘problem’ for our major health care, political, scientific, and philanthropic institutions. Yet, knowledge about health inequality and the social determinants of health, by itself, does nothing to build durable health equity infrastructure. This talk will explore mechanisms of change that can begin to shift health equity from curriculum to healthcare practice.
