Thursday, October 19: Public Health & Social Justice

Social Justice, the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society, seems to pop up in the news on a daily basis.  So regarding October's Global Conversation about Bioethics, we wanted to hone in on the discussion if the public health sector acknowledges social justice concerns and if so, how are those concerns being addressed.

The field of public health is in the midst of a crisis of public confidence. The public has become skeptical of government’s ability to ameliorate the harshest consequences of socioeconomic disparities. At its deepest level, some believe that government’s purpose should not be to redress economic and social disadvantage, and this may be doubly so for administrative agencies dedicated to public health and the pursuit of science.

Join UCCD for a conversation that will question if socioeconomic fairness is just as important to public health as the prevailing values of personal license and free enterprise? Is this only a global concern or do people in Utah experience social injustice when accessing public health? If it does occur on a local level, what are those barriers?
