Second Century Symposium: Transforming Public Health Education

Date: 

Friday, November 1, 2013, 8:00am to 6:30pm

Location: 

Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA

Harvard School of Public Health has organized a symposium on the future of public health education, timed to coincide with the celebration of its centennial in 2013 and with the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association in Boston. This symposium celebrates the establishment in September of 1913 of the Harvard-MIT School for Health Officers, the direct precursor to the Harvard School of Public Health. It also offers an opportunity to discuss strategic directions for higher education in public health as we approach the centennial of the landmark Welch-Rose Report in 2015.

You are invited to engage in a conversation about the renaissance taking place in public health education, consider the impact of revolutionary changes in how and where people learn, and explore transformations in how we conceive, organize, and provide education to meet current and future public health challenges.
