Do No Harm: Civic Leadership and the Role of Health Care

Can we design a health-care system that serves all? Rupa Marya thinks we can. Through hard lessons learned, Marya joins Donna LaSala, Presidio Graduate School professor, to discuss aspects of the U.S. health-care system that are aligned with social justice and others that create injustice. They will explore workable solutions for diversity and inclusion with a systems-thinking mindset. The conversation will include engaging stories about the past and a hopeful future, including an account of how Marya served the water protectors at Standing Rock, offering medical support during the encampment. She is now helping to build a clinic to decolonize medicine called the Mni Wiconi Health Clinic and Farm. Based on her experience working for the city of Berkeley, Goodwill Industries and other triple bottom line organizations, LaSala will demonstrate how multisector partnerships can merge health care with social justice. Together, they will share what can help when the community provides wide-spread and equitable benefits.
