Post Covid: The Unequal State of Health in America

USC Center for the Political Future

Location: Both

Join the USC Center for Political Future for a discussion about post-pandemic health inequities in America, moderated by CPF Director Bob Shrum and co-moderated by USC Price Professor Neeraj Soon. The panel features a range of speakers well-versed in public health, including Dr. Bradley Stoner, Sujeet Rao, and Congresswoman Nanette Barragán. This event takes place on Wednesday, October 4 at 4:00 pm PST in TCC 227. It will also be Zoomed, livestreamed on Facebook, and recorded for YouTube.

Nanette Barragán was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2016 becoming the first Latina to ever represent California’s 44th Congressional district. Born in Harbor City and growing up in its surrounding communities, Nanette’s beginnings shaped her interest in issues that matter locally: environmental and health justice, immigration reform, strengthening the economy and affordable and accessible education. She previously worked for the NAACP focusing on racial health disparities and discrimination.

Sujeet Rao served as a Senior Policy Advisor on the White House COVID-19 Response Team under the Biden Administration, where he led the therapeutics portfolio and federal surge response effort during the Delta and Omicron variant surges. He currently is the Director of the Public Exchange Health and Wellbeing Practice at USC Dornsife.

Dr. Bradley Stoner serves as the Head of the Department of Public Health Sciences at Queens University and is the former president of the American Sexually Transmitted Diseases Association. An expert in sexually transmitted infections, his research also examines political and economic underpinnings of health and illness, disparities in healthcare access, and internal medicine.

This event is in partnership with the USC Dornsife Center for International Studies, The Department of Anthropology, Department of Gender and Sexuality Studies, Department of Political Science and International Relations, Department of Sociology, The Institute for Inequalities in Global Health, The Institute for Equity Research, Keck School of Medicine, Narrative Medicine, Price School of Public Policy, and supported by Dr. Alison Dundes Renteln, Professor of Political Science, Anthropology, Public Policy and Law.
