About this Year’s Event
Increased recognition of structural problems—including systemic racism, the inadequate public health response to the pandemic, threats to abortion and trans rights, food insecurity, and the housing crisis—has amplified calls for collective action and structural change. These local, national, and global structural concerns often collide with the traditionally individualistic focus of healthcare and the lived experiences of health. In light of this, how do individuals act, change, think, and feel in ways influenced by social structures, and how are structures in turn shaped by individual and collective action?
We look forward to conversations in person again this year. Nearly all conference sessions can also be accessed virtually.
