In our turbulent world…


“In our turbulent world, health improvement can be a bridge to peace and prosperity, an antidote to intolerance, a source of shared security.”

Dean Julio Frenk, Harvard School of Public Health, 9/12/14

View this video from 2013 on “Mobilizing for Global Health: Stories from the Field,”  a panel discussion moderated by Dean Frenk, where two of the speakers, philanthropist J. Christopher Flowers and trauma surgeon Dr. Robert Riviello, speak of religious faith as key ingredients in the work they do to strengthen global health. The panel was part of a “Global Health Summit” cosponsored by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard School of Public Health.
