Event Description

Game Changers in Global Health: A four-part lunchtime seminar series

The last fifteen years have defined global health in profound and exciting ways. Dramatic increases in funding, the creation of new local/global entities, and the engagement of citizens and the private sector have all played a role in shaping global health as we know it today.

The Global Health Program will be hosting its first Game Changers lunchtime seminar series this spring. Our Departmental Guest, Dr. Anu Gupta will set the stage and interview guest speakers on three game changers in global health.

Session 1: "Past to Present: The Global Health Timeline from 2000-2015"

Lead Discussant: Anu Gupta, MD

In the last 15 years, we have seen the creation of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as well as the birth of Twitter and Facebook.  We've witnessed the formation of the Millennium Development Goals and its completion.  We've formed new ways to fund global health efforts around the world.  We've seen policy decisions spur new discoveries in global health.  In this session, through a trivia-based interactive format, we will discuss seminal events that catalyzed our three game changers.  Join us for this trip down the global health memory lane.

Lunch will be served.
