Panel Designing Futures for Health and Justice

To achieve the profound socio-economic, environmental and political changes we so desperately need, many of our societal systems will require intensive re-visioning. Key professions such as medicine, architecture/design, and the law (among many others) will need to embrace far more socially engaged worldviews and on-the-ground practices. In this dynamic dialogue, two leading figures who have been cutting-edge, exemplary models of how passion for social justice can inform professional life will share their thoughts on what it will take to radically transform professional paradigms. With: Rupa Marya, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at UCSF, one of the nation’s leading figures working at the intersection of medicine and social justice, and co-author of the brand new: Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice; and Deanna Van Buren, M.Arch, groundbreaking activist architect, a major thought leader in advocating a complete rethinking of the criminal justice and incarceration system, and Executive Director of Designing Justice + Designing Spaces. Hosted by: Sonali Sangeeta Balajee, founder of Our Bodhi Project.
