Learn about race, class and ethics in 21st century health care in a free presentation by Congresswoman Donna M. Christensen, a U.S. Delegate for the Virgin Islands.
The event will be Monday, March 28, in partnership with the University of Illinois Springfield at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine on 801 Rutledge St. A reception begins at 6 p.m. in the Pearson Museum on the second floor, followed by a presentation in the south auditorium at 7 p.m.
Christensen is chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust and watches over the health care of minorities.
“Health care is such an important issue for each and every one of us and there are many different perspectives on health care and how it should be provided,” says Jane Treadwell, librarian and dean of the UIS library.
This will be Christensen’s first visit to Springfield. She will meet with students from both UIS and SIU but the public is invited to attend.
The presentation is sponsored by Friends of Brookens Library at University of Illinois Springfield, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and the Illinois Humanities Council.
