Global Chat: Dr. Richard Levins on Complexities and Error in Public Health
Wednesday, March 4 from 12:30 – 1:20 in Kresge G-2. Lunch provided!
Dr. Richard Levins, the John Rock Professor of Population Sciences in GHP, is an ex-tropical farmer turned ecologist, biomathematician, and philosopher of science. His talk will center on how failures to account for complexity — narrow timelines and disciplinary scopes — in large-scale interventions can lead to devastating results. Pesticides create new pests, antibiotics stimulate the evolution of new pathogens, hospitals become the epicenter of infection and economic growth exacerbates inequality and dependence. Instead, Dr. Levins argues for an approach that makes the eco-social system the object of study, highlighting the importance and inseparability of social, biological and physical phenomena in determining health and disease.
