Title of Lecture: “Healing the Beloved Community”
Co by UVA Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Medical Society.
Healing the beloved community. What does that phrase bring to mind? Does it challenge you to dig deeper and dream bigger as a healer? In this talk, Dr. Fleg will work through his aspirational journey toward healing the beloved community through his career in family medicine. Grounded in principles of social justice, love, and strength-based ways of seeing patients and communities, he will ask everyone to dig deeper and dream bigger in terms of what we are here to do as healers.
Dr. Anthony Fleg is a family medicine physician at UNM in the Department of Family and Community Medicine and the College of Population Health. Originally from Baltimore, Anthony grounds his healing work in undoing racism, health equity, and with a focus on strengths and holistic health. He also serves as a Partnership Director of the Native Health Initiative (NHI), a love grounded partnership, and has dedicated much of his career to improving health in Indigenous communities. He is a proud father of 4 children, an avid runner, and has recently written his first book, Writing to Heal – A Pandemic Journey to Healing.
