Students present interdisciplinary content in community session on health justice


On a wet Wednesday night, December 4, Pitt Public Health student advocates Sarah Sanders (BCHS ’22), Sarah Bigelow (BCHS ’20), Paris Ekeke (EPI ’20), and Amy Raslevich (HPM ’22) joined peers from the schools of law and nursing for a Health Justice Night at Pitt's Community Empowerment Center in Homewood. The public health presentation topics included the criminalization of childbearing; abortion access; power, policing, and race; and votor disenfranchisement.

The evening was powered by PechaKucha, aimed to spark community level engagement and inter-professional collaboration by offering a unique look at policies that adversely impact population health. PechaKucha is a unique presentation format involving 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each, encouraging group conversations between each set.
