On February 3, 2018, join us for the 11th Annual Community Service Learning (CSL) Conference “Health Where We Live: The Role of the Neighborhood” to explore the notion of health care as a collaborative effort that extends beyond the walls of hospitals and clinics and into the realm where people live, work, learn, and play.
Prabhjot Singh, MD, PhD, Vice Chairman of Medicine for Population Health and Director of the Arnhold Institute for the Mount Sinai Healthcare System, will deliver the keynote address. With wisdom gleaned from his global and domestic experiences in community health, and discussed in his recent book Dying and Living in the Neighborhood: A Street-Level View of America’s Healthcare Promise, Dr. Singh will help us delve into best practices that empower social institutions as partners in promoting health.
