Global Health in the Era of Populism: A Conversation with David Heymann

Tuesday, March 28 | 4:30 - 5:30 PM

Clark Center Auditorium at Stanford University

As the Trump Administration's newly unveiled budget raises questions about the future of global health security, join us for a conversation with Professor David L. Heymann, professor of infectious diseases at the London School of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene and head of the Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House, London. In an interview with Stanford Medicine's Paul Costello, Prof. Heymann will share perspectives from his life and career, having led the global response to SARS and worked on the first and second outbreaks of Ebola. He'll also weigh in on what lies ahead for global health.

The event is free & open to the public.

Special delivery: Letters of support to Syrian refugees

In the video below, Raneem, a Syrian refugee living in Jordan, is shown reading aloud a letter of support from Laila Soudi, a global mental health research assistant at Stanford Medicine. The exchange is part of a campaign Soudi is spearheading to encourage members of the Stanford community to write to Syrian refugees who have fled their country’s violence. She is partnering with CARE International, a humanitarian nonprofit, which produced the video and will deliver the letters to refugees living in camps and in urban centers in Jordan.
