Advancing Urban Public Health – The Future of Public Health: Community, Collaboration, Social Justice, and Health Equity in New Jersey
Advancing Urban Public Health: An Equity and Social Justice Approach is one of 12 Rutgers Big Ideas that aim to have global impact on the critical issues of our day. The project’s goal is to improve the well-being of people and populations in New Jersey by creating a community-centered urban public health hub in Newark that will be a sustainable and replicable model for cities across the world.
The hub will be rooted in practices of health equity and social justice to propel collaboration across care, policy, research, education, industry, and lived experience. You are invited to an insider’s look at this transformational effort on Wednesday, May 26, from 4 to 5 p.m. EST. Join Dean Perry N. Halkitis and Leslie M. Kantor of Rutgers School of Public Health in conversation with Michellene Davis, a trailblazing leader and passionate voice for equity, to learn more about making this Rutgers Big Idea a reality for New Jersey and the world.
