The Future of Pharmaceuticals and Public Health

Department of Medicine faculty and staff are invited to attend a special event this Monday, January 9, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. in Tull Auditorium (Emory University School of Law). Sir Andrew Witty, CEO of GlaxoSmithKline, will present a public lecture on “The Future of Pharmaceuticals and Public Health.” His lecture will be followed by a panel Q&A discussion with:

  • Professor Ruth Okediji, McKnight Presidential Professor, University of Minnesota School of Law (a co-member, with Sir Andrew, of the U.N. Secretary General’s High Level Panel on Access to Medicines, which issued an influential report in September)
  • David Ross, President and CEO of the Task Force on Global Health (the second largest non-profit in the United States)
  • Frank Richards, Jr., Director, River Blindness Elimination Program, Lymphatic Filariasis Elimination Program, and Schistosomiasis Control Program
  • Nicole Kruse, Chief Development Officer for the Carter Center’s Peace, Health, and Education Programs

A reception will follow the panel discussion. Please come, if your schedule allows, and please encourage your students to attend as well, as it promises to be a great opportunity to hear (and ask questions) from a group of leaders in law, health, and policy issues. A flyer announcing the event is attached. Please feel free to share it with anyone you think might be interested in attending.
