The conference will be held Thursday and Friday, Sept. 13-14, on the University campus.

In a Catholic, Jesuit University, social justice finds its origin in the dignity of every human being made in the image and likeness of God. As part of its mission, SLU has supported the promotion of health, health care, public health and health law in service to the social ideals of justice afforded by the dignity of every human being.

The health of human beings is not only the health of individuals, but also needs the proper social and legal conditions that enable the health of communities. The conference on Health and Social Justice seeks to celebrate the University’s work and accomplishments in these areas.

Keynote speakers will include:
