Event description
Panel discussion focusing on health equity and access tied to upcoming Side Effects Public Media documentary on Eugene V. Debs.

About this Event

Rooted in the drama of Indiana’s homegrown revolutionary, Eugene V. Debs, this panel discussion will explore how class affected health outcomes 100 years ago and how it continues to affect outcomes today.

By talking about the life of a rabble-rouser like Eugene V. Debs and coupling that information with current public health issues, we hope to spark a conversation that will put history into action. How did class affect a person’s health in 1919? Are there parallels to 2019? With 100 years in perspective, what worked? What failed? Is the health care system continuing to evolve or does it need a wholescale revolution?

Kim Jacobs, producer of WFYI’s historical documentary “The Revolutionist: Eugene V. Debs,” will lead a discussion with Indiana Medical History Museum historian Sarah Halter and Dr. Wesley Bishop of Marion University, as well as community health experts. Join us for this informative and thought-provoking panel discussion and audience dialogue.

Parking is free and available in the lot by the museum and on the museum’s campus.

RSVPs required due to limited seating. Walk-in guests can only be accommodated after all registered guests have been seated.

PRESENTED BY Side Effects Public Media & WFYI Productions and the Indiana Medical History Museum.
