Register now for the free virtual event MinnPost social: Finding hope amid healthcare disparities in Minnesota – at 5 p.m. Wednesday, August 31st.
MinnPost is committed reporting on Minnesota’s health equity, mental and addiction, particularly when it comes down to the stories of those working to reduce the state’s persistent health disparities.
MinnPost introduced readers to a St. Louis mental health advocate over the past few months. Cloud, who helped refugees plant a garden on city-owned property; an advocate for culturally accessible care to domestic abuse survivors; a Native student who is pursuing a psychology degree at Bemidji State University; entrepreneurs inspired by Philando castile who devised a way of monitoring people’s interactions during traffic stops.
Ava Kian, Andy Steiner, and Harry Colbert, Jr. will be hosting a conversation at 5 p.m. Wednesday, August 31. They will discuss how they find stories that inspire hope despite Minnesota’s slow progress in reducing health disparities.
