Are you healthy? What would your answer be? If it is “no,” do you believe you will receive adequate care? Depending on who you are, that answer might very well be “no”—”no” because your skin is a certain color, “no” because you are a member of the LBGTQ+ community, “no” because you are an immigrant, “no” because you are a woman—the list is longer than it should be.
Each year, Chapman University’s Engaging the World (ETW) program organizes a series of events surrounding a global issue. In the past, they have led conversations on environmental justice and the significance of race—this year, the topic of discussion is health equity. Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences have teamed up to produce this year’s Engaging the World discussion on health equity. The Leatherby Libraries has joined in this collaborative effort by providing a comprehensive bibliography and virtual exhibit providing sources on the topic of health equity.
