This just in from Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH (a Boston Schweitzer Fellow in 1999-2000 who spoke at Pri-Med West earlier this month):
“On Friday, May 21st, my clinic is hosting Anand Grover, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, at a Town Hall in South Los Angeles. Please see below.
Although his trip is not an official fact-finding mission, the opportunity to discuss health and human rights in the US within the international context should be fruitful.”
So will the opportunity to talk with Rishi — who now directs a LA community clinic’s program in social medicine and health equity; who founded and directs the Rx Democracy! , a national nonpartisan campaign to advance civic engagement through health care; and who spearheaded a local Health and Human Rights Initiative, which has engaged over 2000 residents and community partners in the creation of the South Los Angeles Declaration of Health and Human Rights.
