Narrative Medicine Rounds: “Main Streets,” a talk by Mindy Fullilove

January 6, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

For our first Narrative Medicine Rounds in 2021, we are honored to welcome Mindy Thompson Fullilove, MD, LFAPA, Hon AIA, who is a social psychiatrist and professor of urban policy and health at The New School.  Since 1986, she has conducted research on AIDS and other epidemics of poor communities, with a special interest in the relationship between the collapse of communities and decline in health. Professor Fullilove will be speaking about her recent book, Main Street: How a City’s Heart Connects Us All, which was published last fall by New Village Press. Our moderator is writer and urbanist Andy Merrifield, whose most recent book is Marx, Dead and AliveReading ‘Capital’ in Precarious Times. Joining in the discussion will be Peter Walsh, one of the owners of Coogan’s, a well-known Irish bar and restaurant in the Washington Heights area of New York City that closed in March 2020.

Narrative Medicine Rounds are monthly rounds on the first Wednesday of the month hosted by the Division of Narrative Medicine in the Department of Medical Humanities and Ethics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. A recording of our Virtual Narrative Medicine rounds will be made available following the live session on the Narrative Medicine YouTube channel. You can also listen to a podcast of past Rounds on iTunes or watch recent ones on YouTube.
