Why We're Coming Together

Seven decades ago, Dr. King singled out injustice in health care as the “most shocking and the most inhuman” form of inequality, and it remains a dire problem today. This series will identify solutions through interdisciplinary collaboration, highlight innovative work occurring across the University’s schools, and rally our community around actionable steps to address this unconscionable situation. We believe Stanford is uniquely positioned to tackle this issue as we can bring together perspectives from all disciplines. 

The goal of the symposium is to develop solutions to eliminate health disparities while highlighting Dr. King’s dedication and legacy on the issue of health equity. We hope the event will build community and strengthen connections by bringing together equity-focused educators, researchers, and practitioners across numerous disciplines.
