When Public Health Means Business

The current COVID-19 pandemic has revealed a plain truth: We can no longer afford to operate in silos. Instead, this once-in-a-lifetime public health crisis demands a remarkable level of cooperation across sectors and disciplines. Now more than ever, public health and business need to forge ahead together to clear the runway for our economy and society to thrive.

What will it take to move forward globally? How do we battle the war against science? What will it take to succeed? How can we prepare now for the next pandemic?

Harvard Chan School Dean Michelle Williams presents “When Public Health Means Business”, a series that virtually convenes luminaries from the realms of finance, industry, and health to map a new path forward and ensure a better, safer future for all. Jointly presented by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the New England Journal of Medicine, and hosted by The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, these virtual symposia will be presented on Zoom and live-streamed on Facebook and additional places.
