"Community Organizing & Community Building: Public Health Watchwords for the 21st Century" Satellite Broadcast
Tompkins-McCaw Library will be hosting a satellite broadcast of Dr. Robert Fullilove's keynote lecture of the 31st annual Minority Health Conference at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill on Friday, February 26 from 2 to 3:30 pm in room 2-010. In this lecture, Dr. Fullilove will explore the opportunities available through a return to the roots of old-fashioned community organizing. Through community organizing, we can construct interventions out of those efforts to develop solid, cohesive groups who can work effectively to deal with community issues. Organizing for collective efficacy should be a watchword for our efforts to eliminate health disparities.
