Access to Health: It's Political - A Community Dialogue

Wed, 2 Apr 2014 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

JMU Rose Library, 3rd Floor Flex Space

This community dialogue will engage the contentious questions of access to health with stakeholders from many different groups in the community of Harrisonburg.  Students enrolled in a course to become trained community dialogue facilitators through the 4C Initiative: Campus Community Civic Collaborative will conduct interviews during January and February with those involved in delivering healthcare, and those who help others access healthcare to understand the issues in our community then structure a productive conversation. The hope is that all participants will both shape and gain understanding of how access to healthcare is impacted by many factors in our local community.

This event is part of a larger programming schedule for A Book for the 'Burg, a new community reading experience. The event is free of charge, open to the public, and does not require participants to have read the book.

This event is organized by the "4C Initiative: Campus Community Civic Collaborative,” a program of the Institute for Constructive Advocacy and Dialogue (ICAD).

Parking is available to campus visitors in the C10 and D2 lots between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. No permits will be necessary. A parking map is available here. All regulations for JMU students, faculty and staff will remain in effect, and students attending the event are required to park in appropriate student parking lots with a JMU parking permit.
