The “Health and Resiliency in the Commonwealth and Mid-Atlantic” program theme builds upon understanding not only the past, but our current moment. While issues of physical health and well-being often take center stage, the last two years have illustrated how definitions of economic health, community health, political health, and organizational health have altered in the face of rapidly shifting circumstances.

Sessions include an opening plenary by Prof. Janet Lindman, panels that address the histories of medicine spanning from the Age of Revolutions through industrialization, we will welcome our friends from PA Humanities for a special luncheon as well as a Friday banquet celebrating the past and future of the PHA.
