Dornsife SPH Magazine Vol. 23 Focuses on Theme of Health Equity
May 9, 2023
Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health (DSPH) has published a new issue of Dornsife SPH Magazine.
Volume 23 focuses on health equity and features a sample of exciting projects at our School that address health equity and other key public health challenges with which health equity intersects.
"We are fortunate to have terrific faculty, staff, and students at Dornsife who have been focusing on health equity and the fundamental links between social justice and health from the very origins of the School more than 25 years ago," writes Ana V. Diez Roux, MD, PhD, MPH, Dana and David Dornsife Dean, Dornsife School of Public Health, in her Dean's Message.
"Our approach to health equity is driven by the knowledge that the structures and systems of society are ultimately what drive inequities in health: systemic racism and its multifaceted implications for health across history and across generations; systems of inequality rooted in our economy; and the organization of work and educational systems, among others. All these systems act together and reinforce each other in many ways. This is why addressing health equity requires addressing the fundamental ways in which our society is organized, and the way in which we live together."
