In recent years, countries have achieved important progress on health, but most are still far behind where they need to be. Half of all people go without access to basic health services, and efforts to improve health often focus narrowly on providing care, overlooking larger social factors. The Rockefeller Foundation believes this global health divide is exacerbated by a divide in data-informed decision making. The most vulnerable, resource-poor communities are simply not benefitting from advances in data science for health.

Jeanette Gustat of TU Public Health and Anamaria Villamarin-Lupin of Broadmoor Improvement Association discuss an onsite garden that supplements BIA’s food pantry at Broadmoor Community Church and its impact on the community and how community members and students are involved.

Tour the Arts and Wellness Center, the neighborhood including Broadmoor Community Center and Rosa Keller Library and the garden at Broadmoor Community Church.

A Kickoff Community Event 

This community event aims to encourage an open discussion surrounding the impact of slavery on the United States. We hope that by publicly acknowledging 400 years of inequality, we can promote understanding and awareness while joining the community in reaffirming our commitment to a future of equality. Event will feature speaker series, mass incarceration panel disscussion, local performers, art exhibit, and documentary screening.
