Event Description

Ed Cohen draws on fifty years of living with Crohn’s to consider how Western medicine’s turn from an “art of healing” toward a “science of medicine” deeply affects both medical practitioners and their patients. How might taking a transformative justice approach spur new imaginations of not only social justice but also embodiment, health, individual well-being, and collective disease? 

Event Speaker

Ed Cohen, Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University
