Fireside Chat: A Half Century of Equity in Medicine
February 21 @ 2:00 pm
The Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Leadership, Equity, and Justice at Rutgers’ Graduate School of Education is holding a book discussion at 2 p.m. on February 21, 2023, in honor of Black History Month.
The event, titled “A Half Century of Equity in Medicine,” will feature a discussion between Louis W. Sullivan, co-author of We’ll Fight It Out Here: A History of the Ongoing Struggle for Health Equity, and Marybeth Gasman, executive director of the Proctor Institute. Prior to his becoming Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Sullivan (along with Walter Bowie and Anthony Rachal) founded the Association of Minority Health Professions Schools (AMHPS). This webinar will share the need that bound together this small group of Black institutions and the hard-won influence AMHPS built in American politics and health care. This webinar will also feature a panel discussion about the book and the events it chronicles.
