Health Equity Café
The team at the Alliance for a Healthier World offers the Health Equity Café as a key feature during its New Perspectives event. The Health Equity Café uses the innovative World Café methodology (Brown & Isaacs, 2005) to stimulate understanding between diverse disciplines.
During the evening, each person will participate in a number of facilitated small-table conversations, with opportunities to share ideas and plans together. The faculty around each table represent the diverse expertise across the Johns Hopkins University.
The Café is designed to spark meaningful conversations, and to help faculty get to know about people who they wouldn’t ordinarily work with. Building new relationships and networks should stimulate new thinking and potential collaborations around the issues of health equity that can be supported by the Alliance for a Healthier World
The Health Equity Café provides an opportunity to create new or expanded teams to pursue multiple disciplinary projects.
