The Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto is proud to announce an inaugural Global Health Equity & Innovation Summit:
Creating a Pandemic of Health
November 3-5, 2014
MaRS Discovery District, Toronto, Ontario
The Dalla Lana School of Public Health and the Institute of Global Health Equity & Innovation will be hosting a summit entitled "Creating a Pandemic of Health". The event will bring together global health leaders, who will explore how best to create a pandemic of health through our foundational theme “Creating and Spreading Health: What would it take to promote full happy lives from the first to the last breath, for all?”
A ground-breaking scholarly agenda will emanate through the following 5 sub-themes
Preventing the preventable, treating the treatable, transcending the inevitable: What is the gold standard for health systems?
Urbanism, health, and the growth of megacities: When is more, more?
Politics, privilege and power: What really determines global health inequities?
Achieving convergence: What kind of life should future generations experience?
Global big data: How can Big Data accelerate Global Health Progress?
