 Health inequalities between income and racial groups continues to be a major public health issue in the United States. There are many determinants of these disparities. This panel will discuss policing in low-income communities in light of Ferguson and Staten Island and how policing plays a role in the continued health gaps by linking policing, crime and advocacy to health, mental health and well-being. This panel will include a thoughtful discussion between the panelists and the audience. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.
