2/13 Gen-I NOW: Young Leaders Visualize Health Equity

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM), a nonprofit research organization in Washington, DC, is calling on young leaders, ages 5-26, to use art to explore how the social determinants of health play a role in shaping their lives and their communities, and what it might look and feel like to one day live in a world where everyone has the same chance to be healthy, safe, and happy. Young Leaders Visualize Health Equity aims to use art as a vehicle for collecting valuable insights from young people around the world about how the social determinants of health shape their lives and the lives of those closest to them. We hope the art, and the process of creating the art, will spark a dialogue about how our lives and our health are shaped by everything around us, and provide insight into how these factors support or hinder everyone’s chance of living the healthiest life possible. Submit your artwork by February 28, 2019 11:59 PT.
