Event description

Description

We would like to invite you to the 3rd annual UC Davis School of Medicine and Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing’s Coalition for Health Equity Conference! In light of current events and the vast impact of policy on health, healthcare access, and the perpetuation of health inequalities, this year’s student-led conference will be an opportunity to identify the connection between public policy and many aspects of community and patient wellness. We aim to empower health professions students to question and to confront policy that creates systems of injustice through involvement with community organizations and political activism. We welcome all students, community organizations, and healthcare providers to join us in creating a dialogue on barriers to care, health disparities, and advocating for patients at a policy level.

Workshop and Speaker Topics:

  • Why Does Policy Matter?
  • Nuts and Bolts of Advocacy and Policy
  • Student Advocacy Toolbox
  • Changing the Face of Healthcare: Nurses Leading the Way
  • The Fight for Single Payer Insurance
  • Why Food Justice?
  • Policy and Health: When Legislators Ignore Evidence-based Medicine
  • It’s Not Just Food: The Ripple Effect of What You Eat
  • How Harm Reduction Changed the Dialogue
  • Navigating the Landmines of Educational Policy
  • Understanding the School to Prison Pipeline
  • Panel: Where the Fight is Now


Food provided, with a post-event networking event.
