Join us for A Special Goldstein Lecture on Human Rights: The Right to Health, Equity & the Pursuit of Justice presented by Dr. Nada Fadul in a virtual event on Sept. 23 from 7:00–8:15 P.M.
In this lecture, Dr. Fadul examines how health — as a human right — has not been accessible to everyone. The talk will review the health disparities, both local and global, that were brought to the surface by the COVID-19 pandemic and will consider how racial justice movements worldwide can accelerate health equity programs.
