On November 29, 2017, three of University of Pennsylvania’s distinguished professors presented their collaboration on Health Disparities in the second PIK seminar. Penn Integrates Knowledge (PIK) is a program where the hand-picked professors collaborate and “bring knowledge together across disciplines and use that knowledge to illuminate some of the most fundamental issues of our time.”
Sarah Tishkoff, Dorothy Roberts, and Karen Glanz with Provost Wendell Pritchett.
The speakers were Karen Glanz, MPH, PhD of Perelman School of Medicine and School of Nursing, Sarah Tishkoff, PhD of the Perelman School of Medicine and the School of Arts and Sciences, and Dorothy Roberts, JD of Penn Law and School of Arts and Sciences, with an introduction by Provost Wendell Pritchett. They presented their ideas on Health Disparities: Integrating Knowledge from Genomics, Social Sciences and Law to a group of about 140 at the Law Auditorium in the Jordan Medical Education Center. There was a live-stream of the presentation for those that couldn’t make it.
After taking questions, the speakers and audience continued the conversation at a reception in the beautiful atrium.
