On May 26, the Semel Healthy Campus Initiative Center will host a panel discussion on health equity and social justice to provoke meaningful conversation and engagement around how our community can foster health and well-being, while also building empathy and reducing health inequities at UCLA and beyond. Semel HCI aims to build a culture of health as the foundation for a resilient, equitable and thriving community for more than 85,000 students, faculty, staff and visitors at UCLA.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Nicole Green, executive director of UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services and co-leader of the Semel HCI MindWell Pod. The panelists include Metta Sandiford-Artest, NBA world champion; Dr. Michael Rodriguez, professor in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health; Jessica Arzola, graduate student and Global Food Initiative fellow; and Miranda Kim, assistant commissioner of the Student Wellness Commission.
This discussion is part of the 2021 Virtual Celebration: #BruinsTogether, which will feature musical performances by UCLA students and recognize community members.
The Semel Healthy Campus Initiative Center at UCLA is envisioned and supported by Jane and Terry Semel.
