Summer/Fall 2020


Wednesday-Friday, July 22-24

Berkeley Center for Social Medicine is pleased to co-sponsor:

Encuentro Internacional COVID-19: Salud colectiva y pandemia

Un esfuerzo conjunto de organizaciones sociales y universidades para generar un espacio de pensamiento colectivo que formule un programa de acción en red. Un proyecto transdisciplinario e intercultural que surge de la respuesta conjunta y creativa a las siguientes preguntas:

  • ¿Cómo explica el carácter y magnitud de la pandemia y su inequitativa distribución territorial, clasista, étnica y por género?
  • ¿Cómo describe las políticas, estrategias y acciones concretas del Estado -nacional y seccional-, del sector privado y de los organismos de cooperación técnica internacional frente a la pandemia y sus impactos epidemiológicos, sociales y laborales en sus países?
  • ¿Cuál es la visión estratégica, organizativa y de acción que su organización/universidad propone frente a la crisis y la lucha por una salida justa y equitativa?

Janene Yazzie, Co-founder and CEO of Sixth World Solutions

Mari Lopez, Organizer, National Nurses United / California Nurses Association

The Covid19 pandemic has revealed racism as the public health crisis facing the United States. Health disparities are also shaped by employment, immigration, housing, land use, and many other systemic issues and institutions. The United States government’s response has largely been reactive; this event is an opportunity to focus on redefining health policy in ways that go beyond debates about testing or restaurant re-opening. Drawing on their experience of working for change at the grassroots, three  visionary leaders will engage in a conversation about health policy that would encompass the social and structural changes we need to promote good health.
