Centering Restorative Justice In Health Innovation

"We're going to be talking about centering restorative justice within health innovation and I'm really quite honored to be joined by you all who are policymakers, whether you're tech innovators or C-suite level executives," Jamila Michener told a crowd at the American Medical Association's annual meeting in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday.

The Cornell University professor was speaking on the topic of "Prioritizing Equity," the New York Times reports.

"What we mean by that in the context of health care innovation and policymaking and practice refers to the collaborative approach that brings together those key constituents who have historically been marginalized or minoritized or just not a part of decision-making processes, bringing all of those persons together to bear on the decisions made around practices, policies that have historically been a part of different organizations and have been perpetuated by offending parties," Michener said.

The concept of "restorative justice" was adopted by the American Association of Medical Colleges, the UN Human Rights Commission, and the American Medical Association's strategic plan for embedding equity and advancing racial justice and health equity, the Times notes.

Michener's research focuses on poverty, racial inequality, and public policy in the US, and her recent book,Fragmented Democracy Read the Entire Article
