Description

The JHU Forums on Race in America will present a panel discussion titled "Six Months after Maria: Public Health Issues in Puerto Rico."

Puerto Rico's already vulnerable infrastructure was exposed after the hurricane and now debris, structural damage, environmental threats to water sources, and drug shortages are just some of the areas of concern. This panel will explore the historical and economical context, the mental health issues sparked as a result of the hurricane, and current grassroots efforts.

Moderator Yonaira Rivera, a PhD candidate in the Bloomberg School of Public Health and founding member of Puerto Rico Stands will lead a discussion with:

  • Juan Giusti-Cordero, professor of history, University of Puerto Rico
  • Marietta Vazquez, associate professor of infectious disease and a leader for grassroots relief efforts, Yale University
  • Antonio Trujillo, associate professor of health economics, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
