October 27, 2021
8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Zoom/Eric P. Newman Education Center Auditorium (EPNEC; Medical Campus)

“Transforming Public Health: Learning from the past, preparing for the future”

Hosted by the Institute for Public Health

According to a 2020 poll, “More than 7 in 10 Americans believe public health plays an important role in the health of their community.”

As the pandemic continues, how do we recognize the value of public health for the future? How do we prepare our public health infrastructure for future emergencies? Can we strengthen public trust in our health leaders and processes? In what ways can we align healthcare systems and fortify infrastructure, so that they are ready when we we need them most?

Join the Institute for Public Health on October 27, 2021 for this popular and informative hybrid event. Hear from nationally recognized guests such as Leana Wen, MD, an emergency physician and visiting professor of health policy and management at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health; contributing columnist to The Washington Post and a frequent medical analyst on CNN.

The conference will consist of panel sessions on topics such as equity in vaccine distribution here and around the globe, efficiencies (and inefficiencies) in “vertical” (disjointed) health systems, and other important issues. Each panel will include an audience Q&A session.

Please stay tuned to our website for more information as it becomes available.
