For academic year 2017-18, Marquette University will engage in a year-long series of events focusing on health equity. Building on last year’s theme "Freedom Dreams Now," this year will explore health disparities, the social determinants of health, and opportunities for achieving greater equity locally and globally. Engaging students, faculty, staff, and the communities making up greater Milwaukee, Forum events will focus on several dimensions of health equity:

  • Children’s health/social determinants of health
  • Mental health: enduring stigmas and challenges
  • Global health: developing Marquette networks
  • Incarceration and health
  • Milwaukee: accessing healthcare
