Health & Humanities Research Seminar with Columbia University's Sayantani DasGupta speaking on "Abolition Medicine"

“Abolition medicine is a practice of speculation, of dreaming of a more racially just future and acting to bring that vision to fruition.” Sayantani DasGupta, M.D. 

For the first meeting in our Fall 2021 series, we are excited to welcome Sayantani DasGupta, M.D. from Columbia University. Dr. DasGupta’s upcoming presentation, "Abolition Medicine,” brings a question that has been raised in the context of police brutality—who do you serve, who do you protect?—to health care institutions and providers. She will speak for about 30 minutes, followed by an equal amount of time for Q&A and group discussion. 

Dr. DasGupta is a pediatrician, writer, and teacher. She teaches in the Graduate Program in Narrative Medicine, the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, and the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race, all at Columbia University. She writes and speaks on issues of race, gender, health, and social justice and has written books both for adults and for children.
