Public Health in the US and Abroad: Differences in Population Benefits

Stephen Loeb (moderator), Evelyn Sanchez ’17, Meghan Bellerose ’17, Alexander Thomas ’16, Sarah Frankl ’16, Bill De La Rosa ’16, and Aliya Feroe ’17.

Drawing from various experiences, Bowdoin students will share insight on health disparities among populations both globally and in the US. Having worked in places like Ghana, Zambia, and Peru, students will talk about outcome inequities while students who have worked with the CDC and migrants remind us that health disparities also persist in the US. A key message of this panel is that health issues are connected to everyday matters and not purely reserved to realms handled by healthcare professionals.
