Lansing Memorial Lecture: Achieving Health Equity and Population Health through Health Justice
October 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the Rutgers Network of Affiliated Family Medicine Residencies is holding the annual Dr. Martha A. Lansing Memorial Lecture at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, October 18, 2023. The following is from the event description:
“Achieving Health Equity and Population Health through Health Justice”
Presented by Philip Alberti, Center for Health Justice, Association of American Medical Colleges
Philip Alberti is the founding director of the Center for Health Justice at the Association of American Medical Colleges. This effort was “the natural next step in a career focused on eliminating inequities in health and health care,” according to the center’s website. Alberti also currently serves as the association’s senior director of health equity research and policy. His previous roles included leading health equity research and evaluation efforts alongside community partners in New York City for the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and working as a graduate research assistant with Columbia University and the National Center for Children in Poverty.
His two decades of professional experience have nurtured a long-standing passion for researching, implementing, and evaluating systems and policies that can help every community have an equitable chance to thrive. As the founding director of the Center for Health Justice, Alberti is developing efforts to build true community collaborations and an aligned agenda for better health throughout the country. This work is fueled by the strong belief that solutions to health injustice exist within communities themselves, and that the path to better health goes beyond medical care to working alongside partners across multiple sectors that impact our everyday lives.
He earned a Ph.D. degree in sociomedical sciences and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Columbia University.
The Dr. Martha A. Lansing Memorial Lecture, a collaboration between the medical school’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health and the Lansing family, promotes the doctor’s legacy and professional mission of fostering exceptional patient care.
