My colleague Anne Pollock is one of the driving forces behind an event on
Wednesday, October 5, at 3pm, in the Clary Theater of the GT Student
Success Center. "Racism and Health in the South" brings
together Camara Jones, President of the American Public Health
Association and Professor at Morehouse School of Medicine, and Jonathan
Metzl, Professor Sociology and Psychiatry at Vanderbilt U's Center for
Medicine, Health, and Society. Some may remember Dr. Metzl from his appearances on the Melissa Harris-Perry Show on MSNBC, one of them together with Anne and named after her book on Medicating Race.
