Creating Health Equity Through Social Justice

Speaker:
Dr. Adewale Troutman, MD, MPH, Director, Fulton Co. Department of Health and Wellness, Atlanta, GA

Program Description:
Dr. Adewale Troutman, MD, MPH, Director, Fulton Co. Department of Health and Wellness, Atlanta, GA dicusses the continued existence of health disparities related to race and socioeconomic status, which reflects a basic contradiction in American society. Equity is inextricably connected to fairness and justice. Addressing solutions to these problems is therefore a process of creating equity in health by correcting social and economic injustice and focusing on basic human rights and the triumph of social justice.

Objectives:
As a result of this program, participants will be able to:

  • list at least one strategy for creating equity in health.
  • describe basic statistics that convey the idea of social injustice in health status
  • give at least two possible explanations of social injustice in health
