Cards Talk on Public Health11/8/2018
Oregon has many significant health issues ranging from substance abuse, homelessness and mental health, to obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Challenges related to health access, education, background and economic opportunity further impact these issues creating public health epidemics. Join us Thursday, Nov. 5th, 6 p.m.-7 p.m. at Lincoln HS as Dr. David Bangsberg, defines the social determinants of health and explains how they impact various lifestyles.
Drawing on his previous works at the Johns Hopkins Medical School in drug- and crime-ridden East Baltimore, Bangsberg became determined to end public health disparities worldwide, beginning in Oregon. Bangsberg, a Portland native and Lincoln graduate, is also the founding dean of the new OHSU-PSU School of Public Health.
