YIGH Global Health Conversation Series
The Yale Institute for Global Health (YIGH) launched its “Global Health Conversation Series” in 2020 with Former Secretary of State John Kerry and Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as its first speakers. The YIGH series is a moderated forum for the Yale community and alumni to listen to and learn from some of today’s pivotal decision-makers in the world of global health and the COVID-19 pandemic. The events will also be open to the public.
Representing diverse areas of expertise, speakers will address the latest in research, public policy, cutting edge programs, and more. Students, faculty and others interested in global health will be able to ask questions of experts who have dedicated their careers to the health and well-being of people around the globe. Cosponsored by The George Herbert Walker, Jr. Lecture in International Studies at the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale, the series is also is an opportunity to cultivate potential areas of collaboration with leading institutions in global health.
“We created the Conversation Series to bring experts who are leading the charge against the most salient global health issues of our time to the Yale community,” says Saad Omer, director of the Yale Institute for Global Health. “We are pleased to host these influential experts who will have a major impact on health for generations to come.”
"We need to challenge young people to stand up for human rights and women's rights. Health is ultimately a human right."
