She Opened the Door | Health and Justice: Lessons Learned from the Pandemic

A year into the pandemic, issues of health inequities, disparities, and injustice have come to the forefront of the public consciousness. Columbia alumnae and faculty who are passionate about these issues have been leading the drive to expose these failures and to improve health care for everyone in our communities.

Please join us for Dr. Brenda Aiken’s (Director of Medical Services for Columbia Health) virtual conversation with Dr. Julia Iyasere (Executive Director of the Dalio Center for Health Justice at New York- Presbyterian) and Dr. Courtney Cogburn (Associate Professor, Columbia School of School Work). Dr. Iyasere will give us the inside view on how the Dalio Center was established just last year to address health disparities, and what the current projects are. And Dr. Cogburn will explore the findings of her transdisciplinary research on racial inequities in healthcare.

She Opened the Door
The She Opened the Door initiative, which began with a historic conference in New York City in 2018, aims to enlighten, educate, elevate, and to empower Columbia women across the University. She Opened the Door fosters this powerful network of women, whose connection with Columbia broadens their potential and impact in the world, both personally and professionally.
