Young Leaders Visualize Health Equity

Welcome!

You have reached the submission page for Young Leaders Visualize Health Equity

Young Leaders Visualize Health Equity aims to use art as a vehicle for collecting valuable insights from young people around the world about how the social determinants of health shape their lives and the lives of those closest to them. We hope the art, and the process of creating the art, will spark a dialogue about how our lives and our health are shaped by everything around us, and provide insight into how these factors support or hinder everyone’s chance of living the healthiest life possible.

We envision this project as one way for young people to share their own visions of what the world might look like when everyone has an equal chance to be healthy, safe, and happy. We hope that the stories they capture through their art will allow viewers to more fully understand how the social determinants of health impact everyone, including young people and their loved ones, and why it is critical to understand and improve these factors so that future generations can thrive.

Selected submissions, including the artist’s name and written explanation, will be displayed in a digital gallery on the NAM website (NAM.edu).  The NAM will display the name, photo, hometown, and school/work affiliation (if desired) of selected artists. The NAM will also provide sample text to include on resumes describing artists' participation in this project. Additionally, approximately 30 selected entries will be chosen for display at a live gallery show in Summer 2019.
