The Equity and Social Justice (ESJ)

 

The Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) is a series of lectures and dialogues which targets the Harvard Longwood community as well as communities in the greater Boston area. The series provides context to the historical, current, and future state of equity and social justice in health and health care, and engages and equips participants with tools to take action. ESJ events focus on four areas: (1) History and Context, (2) Culture and Environment, (3) Health Disparities, and (4) Leadership and Skills Development.
