CAA Chicago | The Epidemic Beneath the Pandemic

December 16, 2020
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Online Event

In this talk, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed diagnoses our national "epidemic of insecurity”—how an interlocking web of failing systems, from housing to healthcare to financialization—laid the groundwork for the COVID19 pandemic and the racial and economic inequalities it is widening. As a physician, epidemiologist, former city health commissioner, and progressive activist, Abdul connects his experiences rebuilding Detroit’s health department and campaigning for Governor of Michigan to surface insights about where we are, and what got us here.
