Grand Rounds on the Future of Public Health

What does it take to ensure population health? 

This year’s Grand Rounds on the Future of Public Health seeks to answer that question with a roster of visionary speakers working across a range of disciplines. Renowned public health voices in technology, urban health, philanthropy, government, and more will challenge our thinking on global challenges and help set the stage for the future of public health.

Join Dean Linda P. Fried and these national figures in considering and discussing what we must do as a society for the broadest possible manifestation of population health.
