Presentations on segregation, health, and social justice

Attached are some informative and powerful TED Med talks. The first discusses how residential segregation and negative stereotypes create and sustain inequity and the adverse health outcomes that are a direct correlate.


Another TED Med presentation by Dr. Mary Bassett NYC’s Health Commissioner puts social justice in the context of the medical care we deliver. We often think about what we can do for the patient in front of us but we should think about the patients we cannot see, those not under our direct care who are just as deserving.


“There is nothing so unfair as the equal treatment of unequal people.” – Plato
