Revisioning Healing and Public Health in the 21st Century
Medical systems around the world are in crisis. In poorer nations and communities medical care is grossly inadequate and most often inaccessible except to the well-to-do. In more prosperous regions, powerful private interests profit obscenely as drastic inequities in the quality and availability of medical care grow exponentially. What is to be done? Two extraordinary physicians with radical critiques of the current medical paradigm share their strategies and visions of what an effective, equitable, truly compassionate medical system would look like. With: Rupa Marya, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at UCSF, renowned for her dynamic, multi-faceted work challenging racism in our approaches to public health; Victoria Sweet, MD, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF, prize-winning medical historian, a passionate advocate of patient-centered medicine, and best-selling author, most recently of the classic, Slow Medicine. Moderated by Sonali Sangeeta Balajee, Senior Fellow at The Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society at UC Berkeley and founder of The Bodhi Project.
