Transforming Narratives

From Baltimore stoops to the White House,

from outsider art to the art of dying well,

speakers transform their disciplines and their communities. 

March 15: Leana Wen, MD

Dr. Leana Wen runs America’s oldest, continuously operating public health department, is a practicing Emergency room doctor, and advocates passionately for patients and communities.  “Meet the 33-year-old genius solving Baltimore’s opioid crisis” writes Mother Jones about Wen, who issued a blanket prescription for the antidote naloxone to all 620,000 residents of the city, a signature program which has saved over 530 people since 2015.  Under her direction, the Baltimore City Health Department leads the country in health innovations, including “B’More for Healthy Babies,” a strategy resulting in a 38% reduction in infant mortality, and “Safe Streets,” which treats gun violence as a contagious disease.  With Dr. Josh Kosowsky, Wen is the author of When Doctors Don’t Listen

Please register to join us for a simple supper from 6:00-7:00 p.m. on March 15. Dr. Wen's talk will begin at 7:00 in the south transept of the church. (Registration is only necessary for supper.)
