From Togo to Chicago: A Universal Health Coverage Day Panel

December 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CST

Free
Please join ART WORKS Projects for a panel discussion on December 12, 2018 – Universal Health Coverage Day. Presented in tandem with AWP’s current exhibition Women of Togo by photographer Zoe Rain, this discussion will consider the current state of universal health coverage and methods to creating more equity and accessibility when it comes to attaining healthcare in Chicago and around the world.
Panelists:
Jennifer Schechter, Executive Director of Integrate Health
Dr. Judith Cothran, Founder and CEO of Women’s Health of Chicago
Dr. Nataka Moore, Director of Population Mental Health at Chicago Global Health Alliance 

Moderated by Dr. Julie Darnell, Dept. of Public Health Sciences at Loyola University Chicago

 
This event is free and open to the public.
 
Through the presentation of Rain’s portraits of Togolese women, their children, and the local practitioners providing their care, AWP hopes to create conversation about the importance of universal health coverage and what the United States—the country with the worst rate of maternal deaths in the developed world—can learn from community-based healthcare practices in place around the world.
 
Women of Togo is made possible with the generous support of The Patricia Crown Family.
