Just as the previously posted video “Curing Violence” discusses the health of the United States’ urban communities, this New York Times article also focuses on the prevalent health inequities within the United States. Instead of focusing on violence, however, it discusses the role that environment and stress have the physical and mental health of the urban poor.
An interesting take on medicine and public health that applies a framework usually concentrated on global health to health within our urban communities.

Don’t forget about the mass meeting this Wednesday the 22nd at 7 PM in the Michigan room of the League! We’ve prepared a lot of cool stuff, and you’ll get to hear all about the amazing things that are going down this semester (including the lecture series….get psyched!). Plus, if you haven’t already, you’ll get to meet all the lovely people on the E-board. We’re definitely excited to meet you and hope to see you there!
Hello all you fabulous CMC members! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful winter break and holiday season. It is certainly well-deserved.
Throughout our holiday-celebrating, Kat and I have been working to pull ourselves out of our food comas and create a way to reach out to CMC members. What better way to do so than to create a blog where we can communicate with you and update you on CMC events, play on this fun website and pretend we’re grown-up professionals, and brag to people that we run a blog? Yea.. I don’t know either… Anyway, I am pleased to present our official inaugural CMC blog post. Through this blog, we’ll be able to quickly update you on the going-ons of CMC as they’re happening! You’ll get current info on events like our lecture series and, of course, the Global Health Symposium, and be able to to follow the formation of these events in progress. Who knows, maybe we’ll even throw in some posts about current global health issues and research that we think you’ll find fun. It’s really all up in the air right now… but who’d want to start 2014 any other way?
Happy 29th of December!
