Blind Spots in Health Equity
Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 6:00pm to 8:30pm
314 Main Street, Gambrill Center, Cambridge MA 02142
Join us to learn more about how the STEM community can respond to one the greatest moral imperatives of our time.
With over 100 million people displaced globally due to conflict, climate change and persecution, the need for rigorous, inclusive, ethical and sustainable solutions to ease the suffering of vulnerable communities has never been greater.
Historically, scientists and engineers have played a relatively modest role in addressing refugee crises and forced displacement challenges. However this is changing with a number of positive developments in recent years.
Centering on health equity, our panel will talk about some of these developments.
