Coinciding with Women’s History Month, the Health Show II will take place in three different Brooklyn locations in March 2018. This initiative is dedicated to a series of shows that took place in Lower Manhattan in February 1994, called The Women’s Health Show, which explored the American medical system, and questioned, “how women are perceived within it.” The original project included panels developed with community and arts organizations such as A.I.R., and SOHO20, and examined race and racism in healthcare, and medical research deficiencies for diseases affecting women and people of color. These concerns and the systemic imbalances they stem from, remain urgent problems today. The illnesses that primarily affect female and feminized bodies continue to receive proportionally less medical research, and women frequently face inadequate care due to entrenched sexism on the part of doctors. This contemporary iteration of the Health Show will focus on new projects that address health and care both in the medical industry and our day to day lives.
