"Why Global Health Matters; New Insights into the 21st Century"

The intent of the lecture series is to address current issues facing public health practitioners and health policy makers in the global health arena. Dr. Roger I. Glass, Director of the Fogarty International Center, will present his perspective on the importance of efforts to improve global health.  His 12+ years of leadership of the Fogarty Center gives him a unique vantage point on the history and future of global health research conducted by investigators worldwide as well as the need to train the next generation of scientists to address global health work.  After the lecture, there will be a moderated panel discussion with Dr. Glass and Dr. Cohen focused on the future of global health.
