Wefel Center for Employment Law, the Saint Louis University Law Journal, and the Institute for Healing Justice & Equity for a virtual panel entitled “Theories & Practices: Beginning to Address Employment and Health Inequities” as part of their symposium, Health Inequities and Employment: The Continued Struggle for Justice.

This panel will explore how the health justice framework and the theory of bounded justice can be used to address employment and health inequities. The panel will also discuss the work advocates are doing and how it has addressed employment practices and discrimination that is associated with health inequities. Panelists include Ruqaiijah Yearby, Executive Director of the Institute for Healing Justice & Equity and Professor, Saint Louis University School of Law; Melissa Creary, Assistant Professor of Health Management and Policy, University of Michigan School of Public Health; Pilar Whitaker, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights; and ABB Staff Attorney Cassandra Gomez.
