At the age of 25, Freddie Gray Jr., a resident of Sandtown-Winchester, died in West Baltimore. His death was premature and avoidable! For decades, Sandtown-Winchester has been a socially disabled community. Sandtown-Winchester is only 72 square blocks, and it is populated with 15,518 residents. Yet, Sandtown-Winchester residents’ communal health and well-being outcomes often doubled that of Baltimore City. Socially, ethically, and legally, Sandtown-Winchester residents and community deserve a better quality of life. Through the lens of social epidemiology and legal epidemiology, this workshop will explore ways that transdisciplinary approaches (e.g., public health, legal, human services, researchers, and residents) could assess, advocate, and rectify residents who live is socially disabled communities: 1) violations of civil rights, 2) failed social return on investment (SROI) of government-funded preventive and intervention services and programs, and 3) due process desecrations of residents who are generational products of socially disabled communities.
