Panels on 10/22
I was graciously invited to join 2 panels on October 22nd.
Arlene Geiger moderated a panel for students of John Jay College in the afternoon. The students filled the room, and asked thought-provoking questions on health reform.
The Public Health Association of NYC and the Black and Hispanic Student Caucus of Mailman School of Public Health co-sponsored a panel at Columbia. Dr. Karen Wang and I busted some myths with the best of them (Tim Foley, Mark Hannay, Lamont Carolina, and others). Thanks to Jessica Silk and Lois Uttley inviting us to this lively event.
A common theme in both was concern over reproductive rights being sidelined in the health reform debate.
