Social Justice and Health Equity: Care for People at the Intersections

December 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Everyone deserves access to competent, comprehensive, and compassionate healthcare that addresses healing from a holistic perspective.


The trauma of incarceration uniquely impacts people living with HIV and AIDS, exploring this intersection enhances our ability to create equitable systems of healthcare.


This interactive symposium will explore the disparities our unique community faces when accessing prevention, treatment, and care. Through engaging discussion, we will examine The Fortune Society’s innovative model of service provision and integrated research. Utilizing active audience contribution, we will hone our advocacy skills and approach to care while connecting to an expanding network of individuals dedicated to collectively dismantling inequity within the healthcare system.
