Leveraging Epidemiological Evidence to Accelerate Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Underserved Populations
2021/12/07 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
We would like to invite you to register for “Leveraging Epidemiological Evidence to Accelerate Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Underserved Populations”: Goodarz Danaei’s Tenure Review Talk on Tuesday, December 7 at 2:30 p.m.
Goodarz Danaei, MD, MSc, ScD, is an associate professor in the Department of Global Health and Population here at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. His current research focuses on population and individual-level analyses of cardiovascular risk factors and their health effects, as well as reduction interventions in low- and middle-income countries. This research uses empirical evidence on risk factor distributions from population health surveys and evidence on effect sizes from epidemiological studies. His work also focuses on applying advanced methods of causal inference to questions of comparative effectiveness research from observational data in the context of cardiovascular diseases and other non-communicable diseases.
He has been a member of our Global Health and Population community since 2010, and as of 2016, Dr. Danaei chairs and directs the Bernard Lown Scholars in Cardiovascular Health Program. The program aims to train an international cadre of talented health professionals who will use public health tools and strategies to prevent cardiovascular diseases and promote cardiovascular health in developing countries. We hope you will join us to hear his presentation, and by clicking the link here you will be led to the registration page.
