Health & Medicine’s Founder, Dr. Quentin Young, coined the phrase, “Everybody in, nobody out,” with regard to universal access to high-quality, equitable, affordable, and culturally competent healthcare.
We believe the same goes for education. We're excited to announce an upcoming forum we're planning, Education and Health Equity: Everybody In, Nobody Out
, to be held on August 14, 2014.
Just as education is closely linked to health status, people’s health, well-being, and socioeconomic position are linked to their ability to further their education. The forum will provide a unique opportunity for education and health professionals to examine this reciprocal relationship between the two fields. Speakers will include Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis
and Linda Rae Murray, MD,
Chief Medical Officer for the Cook County Department of Public Health
as well as other health and education professionals, advocates, and community members.
