Decoding Disparities Lecture Series
Decoding Disparities is supported by the Paul Levinger Professorship Pro Tem in the Economics of Health Care. It is sponsored by The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Brown School of Public Health to examine health inequity and to outline steps toward a more equitable and just health care system. This lecture was established in 1987 to honor the memory of Paul Levinger by a gift from his wife, Ruth N. Levinger, on behalf of the Levinger family. The Levingers’ daughter and son-in-law, Bette Levinger Cohen and John M. Cohen ’59, MD were instrumental in Mrs. Levinger’s decision to make this gift.
