How does economic stress and poverty effect public health? What are the connections between gun violence, the opioid epidemic and public policy? Join us as we explore these topics and others through the lens of universal basic income model and public health.

Join Dr. Leana Wen, Professor of Health Policy and Management at the George Washington University School of Public Health and former Baltimore City Public Health Commissioner, with filmmaker and journalist Whitney Mallett, as they discuss the effects of public policy on health outcomes.

The event will begin with a screening of Mallet’s short film Mincome (2018), which focuses on the Canadian government’s universal basic income project Mincome, which took place in Manitoba during the 1970s. The screening will be followed by a moderated discussion between Mallet and Dr. Wen and Q+A.

In conjunction with DIS | A Good Crisis, join us for DIS University (DIS U). The conversation series brings together DIS contributors and Baltimore-based thinkers for extended dialogue on big ideas. Moderated by Lee Heinemann of Get Your Life!.
