Event Details

Social Justice in Public Health and Healthcare

The 2018 Humanity in Action Fall International Conference in New York is a gathering for Fellows, Senior Fellows, supporters and friends of Humanity in Action.

The conference will focus this year on "Social Justice in Public Health and Healthcare," exploring the current status of the United States Healthcare system, its potential and the pitfalls in between. As such a wide topic with equally as wide an impact on our lives, this conference will delve into three main categories of focus: social determinants of health, disadvantaged populations, and health insurance reform.

The conference has been organized by a dedicated team of Senior Fellows led by Dr. Amish Dave (Berlin | 2006) who work within the fields of health and healthcare. We are excited to share the knowledge, expertise and hard work of these Senior Fellows.  Please join us for a full day of learning and networking with old friends, as well as other members of our community who are engaged in Humanity in Action's educational mission.

Watch Humanity in Action's website for updates about the conference schedule in the coming weeks. The conference will include:

  • Keynotes and breakout sessions on gun violence, healthcare access, and more
  • A reunion dinner with Humanity in Action Fellows and Senior Fellows
  • A happy hour on the opening night of the conference with friends of Humanity in Action

This event is by invitation only. If you would like to join but did not receive an invitation, please email us at usa@humanityinaction.orgFor regular updates on topics, speakers and workshops, please visit our website.
