The 2023-2024 Grand Rounds on the Future of Public Health speaker series will center around the theme, A Healthy and Just World: What would it take? This idea builds upon the framework of public health as a foundational public good for society and takes it to the next level of what investments, structures, communications and more are needed to realize public health’s true potential to foster a healthy and just world. The series will engage our community on topics of health equity, public health communications, climate change, healthy aging, mental health, global health and community health.

Grand Rounds was initiated in 2008 at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health to create an intellectual space within which to explore national and global public health challenges and the innovative approaches needed to transform the public’s health in the 21st century.
