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 with a systems-thinking mindset. The conversation will include engaging stories about the past and a hopeful future, including an account of how Marya built the mobile hospital at Standing Rock. Based on her experience working for the city of Berkeley, Goodwill Industries and other grassroots organizations, LaSala will demonstrate how public–private partnerships can merge health care with social justice. Together, they will share what can help when the community provides wide-spread and equitable benefits.
