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

  1. Preventing the preventable, treating the treatable, transcending the inevitable:  What is the gold standard for health systems?

  2. Urbanism, health, and the growth of megacities: When is more, more?

  3. Politics, privilege and power: What really determines global health inequities?

  4. Achieving convergence: What kind of life should future generations experience?

  5. Global big data: How can Big Data accelerate Global Health Progress?
