Shaping the future of public health: A conversation with emerging leaders

October 26th, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm

A psychiatrist who focuses on erasing the stigma of mental health care in the Black community. A hospital executive who tackles emergency preparedness through an equity lens. A nonprofit founder who travels the world to bring neurodiagnostic training to the Global South. These are among the new leaders defining the future of public health. COVID-19 thrust the field into the spotlight, sending applications to schools of public health soaring. The future leaders emerging from the pandemic share a powerful conviction that they can forge a more equitable future, with health, dignity, and justice for all. In this panel, we’ll explore the challenges and joys of pursuing that work with several Harvard Chan students and recent alumni.
