Health Disparities - September 27th
The College of Nursing invites the community to attend “Health Disparities” with Calvin B. Johnson, MD, MPH on Tuesday, September 27 at 5:30 p.m. in the Driscoll Hall Auditorium.
Health disparities refer to differences between groups of people in terms of how frequently a disease affects a group, how many people get sick, or how often the disease causes death.
Dr. Johnson is formerly Secretary of Health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for the Temple University Health System in Philadelphia. He is currently President of Altre Strategic Solutions Group. With a background including practice, service and government combined with national leadership roles, he brings a unique perspective to the conversation on communities and health disparities.
The lecture is free and is part of the College of Nursing’s 17th Annual Health and Human Values Lecture Series: Promoting Dignity through Global and Public Health.
