HUBweek: Four Global Health Threats, Four Global Health Opportunities

Join faculty from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health for a wide-ranging discussion examining four major global health threats that are challenging the lives and health of people in the US and globally. Learn what new research and public policy solutions can begin to solve these threats on a large scale for millions of people.

Panel discussions will focus on:  1) Old and New Pandemics, ranging from AIDS, TB, and malaria to new threats including ebola, obesity and diabetes;  2) Social and Environmental Threats, ranging from air and water pollution to violence and war; 3) Poverty and Humanitarian Crises and their effects on health; and 4) Failing Health Systems as we seek to get more and better health care for the money we spend, both here in the US and internationally.
