Charting the Path to Health Equity:
A 20/20 Review of the Political Determinants of Health

In our collective effort to achieve health equity, both in the US and around the globe, contributing factors beyond access to healthcare providers can often have a larger influence on the health of a community.

In this year’s Quie and Peterson Global Health Lecture, our featured speakers will highlight the ways in which political determinants of health have a far greater impact on our ability to achieve health equity than we may realize, and how the long lasting impact of decisions made by our political leaders can influence the health of generations to come.

All are welcome to join us on October 26, 2020 from 11:30–1:00pm ct to learn more about the political determinants of health in advance of the 2020 U.S. elections.


Our annual Quie & Peterson Global Health Lecture honors the work of Dr. Paul G. Quie and Dr. Phillip K. Peterson, striving to continue their legacy of global health leadership and to inspire the next generation of global health leaders.
