View Series Overview

This symposium will take place March 26-27, 2020, in the John K. Pruellage Courtroom of Scott Hall. Missouri CLE credits will be available.

The U.S. government, health care entities​, and health care providers have begun to recognize that social conditions, such as housing, education​ and employment, impact a person’s health and well-being. Although housing and education practices from the Jim Crow era to the present have been linked to health inequities, research regarding the link between employment and health inequities is sparse.  

This two-day symposium will convene scholars, lawyers, community organizations and community advocates working on issues concerning employment and health inequities to begin connecting employment practices to health outcomes. Information garnered from the symposium will be used to create a work plan for utilizing health research and civil rights laws to address health inequities. This 32nd Annual Health Law Symposium is in conjunction with the Institute for Healing Justice and Equity (IHJE) programming. The proceedings will be published in the Saint Louis University Journal of Health Law & Policy.
