convention and a disregard for stuffy authority.

Join another Jewish doctor named Arnold T. Blumberg as he fills you in on some
of the fun behind-the-scenes anecdotes that make the Marx Bros.’ A Day at the
Races and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein two of his all-time favorites in the
annals of Jewish movie medicine.

11:00am – Screening of Day at the Races
1:00pm – Lecture with Dr. Blumberg
2:00pm – Screening of Young Frankenstein

2016 Annual  Meeting
The Greatest Gap: Health Inequity in Baltimore
Samuel Boltansky Memorial Keynote Speaker Dr. Jay Perman, University of
Maryland, Baltimore
 Tuesday, June 14, 6:30pm
Free

In 2010, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation issued a report with this
essential line: “Scientists have found that the conditions in which we live
and work have an enormous impact on our health-long before we ever see a
doctor.”

“The conditions in which we live and work …” In Baltimore, these conditions
are often bleak-often deplorable. These are the conditions that perpetuate
yawning gaps in health care access and efficacy and in large-scale community
health outcomes.

In this talk, Dr. Perman will address the social determinants of
health-education, economic stability, personal and public safety, housing and
transportation, social supports and cohesion. He’ll discuss how anchor
institutions-like the University of Maryland, Baltimore-can help remediate the
grave disparities we see in the health of populations.
