Talk: Poetry as a Partner in Public Health: Join me for a multi-media reading and talk about how communities can turn to poetry to expand cultural competence in public health. 

The talk will be followed by a panel with Ken McAllister, Monica Casper, Deanna Lewis, Ron Grant, and TC Tolbert. In-depth examination of the power differentials, communication barriers, fears, and cultural assumptions that shape public health and public safety and potentially perpetuate silences, and/or aggression and misunderstanding.
