Spurred on by the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the global health community has achieved dramatic gains in recent decades. To give one example, global child mortality was cut by over half from 1990 to 2015. Yet major roadblocks are getting in the way of further progress—from stark health inequities within and between countries to emerging infections and a global pandemic of non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cancer.
How well is the world equipped to take on this next generation of challenges? Join us for a Dinner Dialogue with Professor Gavin Yamey, Director of the Center for Policy Impact in Global Health and a Professor of Global Health and Public Policy.
Selected attendees will be notified via email several days in advance of the dinner with details regarding meeting location. All dinners will be within reasonable driving distance to Duke campus.
Science & Society will also provide a shuttle for those unable to arrange transportation to the dinner dialogue location. Shuttles will depart 30 minutes before the scheduled event from the front entrance of the North Building on West Campus. Click here for a map.
