Civic Life Lunch - Wrong Place, Wrong Time: Trauma & Violence in the Lives of Young Black Men
Monday, October 22 | 12 PM | Rabb Room, Tisch College
Join Tisch College for a special event with Dr. John Rich, MD, MPH, and author of Wrong Place, Wrong Time: Trauma and Violence in the Lives of Young Black Men. Now a Professor at the Drexel University School of Public Health, Dr. Rich previously served as medical director of the Boston Public Health Commission and as a primary care doctor at Boston Medical Center, where he founded the Young Men’s Health Clinic and created Boston HealthCREW, a program to train inner-city young men to be peer health educators focused on the health of men and boys in their communities. Wrong Place, Wrong Time delves into Dr. Rich’s work serving one of the nation’s most underserved populations, African-American men in urban environments, by addressing both the frequent violence they face and sometimes perpetuate, and the system that overlooks this disturbing cycle.
Cosponsored by the Africana Center and the Department of Community Health. Lunch will be provided.
