What is health social justice, and how do we get it? Can social justice activism pave roads from dismay to creative action that can win real change? Or is the notion of justice already polarized and polarizing, yet another means of dividing people in the guise of enabling them? And how can students, scholars, and practitioners of health humanities best navigate this complex terrain? The Saturday plenary of the Politics of Health Conference joins leading activists and public intellectuals, who will collectively discuss what we should do, and how we should do it, to promote higher ideals during times of turmoil.
