Global Health: Facing the Future
December 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree, RSVP is recommended to ensure seating
As the world becomes more interconnected and the global population rises to an estimated 9.7 billion by 2050, global health is more important than ever before. Previously isolated communicable diseases are more likely to become world problems, new health risks will present themselves, and many will take a global effort to solve. Join moderator Dr. Tom Kawula, Director of Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health at WSU, and our panelists for a discussion on the future of global health and why health needs to be considered in a global context.
