Keynote speaker:
Jonathan Metzl, Ph.D.
Frederick B. Rentschler II Professor of Sociology and Psychiatry and Director of the Center for Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University

Physician and sociologist Jonathan M. Metzl traveled across America’s heartland seeking to better understand the politics of racial resentment and its impact on public health. By interviewing a range of Americans, he uncovers how racial anxieties led to the repeal of gun control laws in Missouri, stymied the Affordable Care Act in Tennessee, and fueled massive cuts to schools and social services in Kansas.
