Discussion Series: The Medical Profession Through the Lens of Human Flourishing

Participate in a national conversation where healthcare professionals can boldly ask fundamental questions about the profession of medicine, discuss its role in advancing human flourishing and consider how to address factors at the individual, community or societal level that can pose barriers to flourishing.

This series is presented by the Kern National Network for Caring & Character in Medicine through an investment from the Kern Family Trust and Kern Family Foundation.


Social Justice, Health Equity and Human Flourishing: Are We All Included?

Online | Tuesday, August 3 | 4-5 PM CT

Over the past year, the disproportionate impact of the pandemic as well as national protests surrounding racial incidents have heightened attention to ongoing disparities—including those within healthcare. What responsibilities do healthcare professionals have to address root causes of health inequity? And what strategies can help dismantle structural barriers to human flourishing that exist across diverse populations?

In this panel discussion, three speakers will share their lived experiences and professional journeys related to those themes. Audience Q&A will follow.


Learning Objectives
  • Explore the responsibilities that all health professionals have to address the root causes of health inequity.
  • Advocate for building a strong relationship between health, health equity and the opportunity for individuals to flourish.
  • Discuss strategies aimed to dismantle structural barriers to human flourishing that exist across diverse populations.
