Collective Care

For too long there has been a focus on self-care. In reality we work and learn in systems with groups of people; in community. Join us as we examine the ways in which collective care can move us away from putting the responsibility of self-care on the shoulders of individuals and shift the onus to the institutions, systems, and structures in which we work and learn.   

Upcoming Session
Tuesday, July 23, 2024 | Noon – 1 pm

Racism in the Patient Experience

Racism as a social determinant of health creates harm and poor health outcomes for patients, but what is the interpersonal experience of prejudice like for patients in everyday provider interactions? Join us as we discuss the preponderance of racism and microaggressions in health care through the lens of patient experiences.

The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

 Location: The Met Fifth Avenue, The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery for Special Exhibitions – Free with Museum Admission

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will present the groundbreaking exhibition The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism. Through some 160 works of painting, sculpture, photography, film, and ephemera, it will explore the comprehensive and far-reaching ways in which Black artists portrayed everyday modern life in the new Black cities that took shape in the 1920s–40s in New York City’s Harlem and nationwide in the early decades of the Great Migration when millions of African Americans began to move away from the segregated rural South. The first art museum survey of the subject in New York City since 1987, the exhibition will establish the Harlem Renaissance and its radically new development of the modern Black subject as central to the development of international modern art.
