October 12, 3:30 p.m.: Sam Dubal’s Inaugural Memorial Lecture on Racial Justice in Global Health, on line

Presented by: Dr. Ugo Edu, Assistant Professor of African American Studies at UCLA

This conference draws on various moments, fictional and non-fictional, to explore our commitments to the anti-racism work necessary to advance health equity. It asks for an interrogation of what is meant by “health” and how this or these definitions inform what can be envisaged as equity in health. By asking whether we are sure we want health equity, it invites us to reflect on our commitments and our willingness to sacrifice on performative gestures and declarations that often contradict the stated objectives.
