The Center for Biotechnology & Global Health Policy

Conversations on Mental Health, Race, and Society

Thursdays, January 15–April 9, 2015

UC Irvine School of Law

This dialogue series sponsored by the Center for Biotechnology & Global Health Policy examines the intersections of law, race, society, and mental health through the use of dialogue and documentary.

The series provides a forum for thinking about the emotional, psychological, and mental health dimensions of social violence and discrimination, examining legal cases as a platform for the discussions. The series is moderated by Professor Michele Goodwin, Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Professor of Public Health and Gender & Women's Studies.

The roughly hour-long sessions will be held at lunchtime, except for the Jan. 22 event, which will be in the evening. Full series schedule is below.

RSVP here for the Jan. 15 event »
