--> RSVP to this event


The 2022 - 2023 Grand Rounds on the Future of Public Health speaker series will engage our community in conversations about public health as a public good. The country's COVID-19 response made clear the critical importance of rethinking the role of public health within our society. Reflecting on the deficiencies of the existing system, this year's focus will feature discussions on equity, the healthy lifespan, how we translate science into the right solutions in the public health system, economic policy, and more.

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.
