At Loyola, our overall mission is to yield social justice in the distrubtion and access to healthcare in the United States. There are multiple ways to address health disparities including advovocacy, research and policy. During the 2009 Loyola University Chicago Moviefest, some Loyola students put together a video on being homeless in Chicago. The link is posted below and is a great example of advocacy for social justice. The Loyola University Chicago MPH Program is multi-disciplinary and includes faculty from the Medical and Law schools, School of Social Work and Sociology, and the Bioethics Institute. By brining multiple disciplines together, our overall goal is to provide students the required skillset to address health and social disparities and move social justice forward. We applaud the students who created the video.
