On an annual basis, the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute, in collaboration with the Office of the Provost, convenes a symposium focused on the social determinants of health. This year marks the 50th anniversary of a series of events in 1968 that sparked social change on both a national and local level, such as the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and of Robert F. Kennedy, the protests at the Democratic National Convention, the riots in Baltimore, the Poor People's Campaign, and the anti-war movement.
Join us to hear from local and national leaders as they reflect on activism and social justice from 1968 to 2018. The Urban Health Institute, hosts of the symposium, hopes that the event will build stronger partnerships and collaborations to improve the health and well-being of Baltimore communities.
The all-day symposium will be held on Monday, April 30. Registration is required.
