The Dean’s Seminar Series on Chronic Disease: Priorities in COVID-19 Vaccination

October 29, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Featuring:
Bruce Gellin, MD, MPH
President, Global Immunization
Sabin Vaccine Institute

Ronald Bayer, PhD
Professor, Sociomedical Sciences
Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

This seminar series focuses on one of today’s greatest public health challenges: the global epidemic of chronic diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and the pandemic of obesity. To foster discussion and innovation across the Mailman community on key questions such as the role of prevention and health preservation, how to reduce disparities, determining which policies and interventions will be most impactful and at what points in the life-course, and how to set goals and measure progress, the School offers talks by thought leaders outside of and among the Mailman School faculty.

All events are open to the public.

Faculty and doctoral students are invited to meet with the speakers. To arrange to meet with a speaker, contact las2336@cumc.columbia.edu.
