New Haven Voices: Growing and Becoming

Event time: 
Thursday, September 29, 2022 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Event description: 

The Office of Medical Education and Diversity, Inclusion, Community Engagement, and Equity (DICE) Office are hosting a two-part in-person panel discussion with New Haven community members about New Haven, its history, and how issues such as housing, education, safety, job opportunities, and the environment impact the health and well-being of its residents. Through this series, it is also our hope that members of the Yale School of Medicine community can better understand how they can most meaningfully contribute to the New Haven community, in their role as health professionals as well as residents of the city.

This second session will bring in new speakers to focus in particular on health care, education, and the environment.
