Four Global Health Threats, Four Global Health Opportunities

October 5th, 2015 ~ 09:00am–01:30pm
Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA

Examine four major global health threats that challenge the lives and health of millions of people in the US and globally: 1) Old and New Pandemics, ranging from AIDS, TB, and malaria to such new threats as ebola; 2) Social and Environmental Threats, ranging from air and water pollution to obesity and smoking; 3) Poverty and Humanitarian Crises, including natural disasters and wars that impact health; and 4) Failing Health Systems, seeking to get more and better health care for the money spent, both here in the US and internationally. The greater Boston community is invited to learn both about new research that is at the forefront of change, and to explore how public policy can achieve large-scale solutions at lower cost.
