Please join us for the next FSPH Public Health Grand Rounds on Monday, April 30: "An Urban Health Monitoring System In the Informal Settlements of Dhaka, Bangladesh"
We prepare for life’s most important events – births, graduations, weddings and vacations. So why do we put almost no thought into events that shape how we treat serious illness and the end of life?
With planning and conversation we can improve our quality of life as we face serious illness, family caregiving and the decisions we need to make.
Power to Heal: Medicare and the Civil Rights Revolution
Before Medicare was established in 1965, disparities in access to hospital care were dramatic. Less than half the nation's hospitals served black and white patients equally, and in the South, one third of hospitals would not admit African-Americans even for emergencies. Medicare was used to mount a dramatic, coordinated effort that desegregated thousands of hospitals across the country in a matter of months.
This award funds a workshop and symposium on Causal Inference, an interdisciplinary subject that has engaged a range of disciplines, including philosophy, mathematics, computer science, neuroscience, psychology, epidemiology, cognitive science, sociology and economics.
