Martin Luther King Jr. Health Sciences Program

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane,” Martin Luther King, Jr. – Second National Convention of the Medical Committee for Human Rights, Chicago, March 25, 1966

Join the University of Michigan health science schools, colleges and units for a series of events dedicated to understanding and improving health equity for all. The U-M central campus theme for this year's MLK events is "Unravel.” It embodies what health professionals do each day, investigating the individual pieces that contribute to a person's or community's mental and physical health. 

This is America Panel Discussion

Childish Gambino’s "This is America" music video is a portrayal of controversies in the United States. On Nov. 7, UMSN will screen the video, then a panel of health experts will discuss ways the video relates to health and social justice.  Dinner will be provided for attendees.
