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 Alive: Reading ‘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.
