In cities like Los Angeles, health disparities are continuing to grow at a rapid rate. We understand that “health” in urban areas goes beyond fighting illnesses and preventing diseases.
The quality of life of residents in marginalized communities, especially, is affected by factors like income and racial inequality, and the physical and built environment. These among other obstacles impact the way we live, where we live, and our ability to access the tools we need to sustain a dignified quality of life.
At PLUS² this year, we’re interested in examining the intersection of health, economics, and the city. Beyond clinical health, what are some of the barriers preventing residents in urban areas from being healthy? And how can we think differently about who gets the opportunity to heal and live healthy lives?
The full-day summit will consist of short talks and panels from invited leaders and influencers, followed by a thoughtful discussion with our guests.
LURN invites you to join us for the whole day, or just for the sessions that interest you the most. We’ll break for lunch and will end the day with a hosted a cocktail hour on site. Hope to see you there!
