Resiliency, globalization of medicine and inequities in health care

Date: 31 January 2017 12:00pm - 31 January 2017 1:30pm

Venue: Auckland University, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, room 503-028, 85 Park Road, Grafton

Speakers: Dr Keyna Bracken

Resiliency, globalization of medicine and inequities in health care. Is there a relationship?

Interest in global health is rising in medical schools around the world. Opportunities in international service learning comprise much of medical students’ undergraduate global health exposure, and this can empower students to address inequities in health care and advocate for social justice.

No country is immune from social inequities and vulnerable populations who face higher burdens of morbidity and mortality. Global health is relevant to the development of humanistic physicians, who are better able to address the needs of complex, diverse and often under serviced communities whether home or abroad.

Dr Keyna Bracken is an associate professor in the department of Family Medicine at McMaster University.

Book launch: The Diversity Matrix and SUPERdiverse WOMEN

Date: 15 February 2017 5:00pm - 15 February 2017 6:00pm

Venue: NZME office, 2 Graham Street, Auckland

Speakers: Phil Goff, Mayor of Auckland

The diversity matrix: implications for law, policy and business is a follow-up publication to Superdiversity stocktake launched in November 2015. It proposes that New Zealand needs to refresh its definition of diversity in the twenty-first century to account for the matrix of intersecting factors that make up each person’s identity. Currently, diversity tends to be limited to single axis lines – for example, more women or Māori on boards. New Zealand needs a new definition of diversity, that reflects the real lived experiences of the New Zealand population, as it becomes increasingly superdiverse, and of multiple ground discrimination.
