Prof. Yearby to Speak at CONVERSATIONS! at Dittrick Museum

CONVERSATIONS! at Dittrick Museum - The Babes were Silent: Infant Mortality and Public Health- Thursday, March 29th 6:00 - 7:00pm

From the website:

"Brandy Schillace, PhD, Senior research associate at the Dittrick Museum, will give a short TED-style talk on the rapid industrialization and immigration boom of the early 20th century in Cleveland. She will take a look at how a stressed water and sewage system, poor housing, and the exploitation of the poorest workers with the least social mobility led to outbreaks of cholera, rampant lead poisoning, and high rates of infant mortality in urban centers. The Social Justice Institute will provide a panel discussion, and the public is invited to take part in the conversation.  The geography of these neighborhoods still matters, and Cleveland still faces high infant mortality rates. The historical presentation will end with a panel discussion about problems of race, class, and health today. The presentation will end with a public roundtable and Q and A.

The event is co-sponsored by the Dittrick Medical History Museum and the CWRU Social Justice Institute."

Doctor-patient confidentiality is as well-known an axiom as attorney-client privilege. Journalists honored the medical privacy of FDR and JFK. Since 1972, when George McGovern's vice presidential candidate left the race after it was reported that he had been hospitalized for depression, the media has reported on the health of major presidential candidates. (NEJM, 2008).

After a District Court Judge denied a request to stop the construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, the Department of Justice, the Department of the Army, and the Department of the Interior issued a joint statement declaring that they would stop the construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land. The construction will be halted until the Army determines if it needs to reconsider its decisions about the Lake Oahe site and it holds government-to-government consultations with the tribes. The statement went on to state support for "the right of all Americans to assemble and speak freely."
