Johns Hopkins’ Global Health NOW to Host Discussion on Hurricane Harvey in Houston on Sept. 27

On Thursday, Sept. 27, Global Health NOW, a news website and weekday e-newsletter from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is hosting a discussion in Houston on Hurricane Harvey’s lessons for public health leaders.

Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, vice dean for public health practice and community engagement at the Bloomberg School, will lead a conversation with Dr. David E. Persse of the City of Houston’s Public Health Authority.

Over a four-day period last August, 51 inches of rain in four days devastated Houston in inflicting injuries, infectious diseases, chemical exposures and mental trauma on residents. The conversation will include the Harvey response, ongoing health issues, crisis preparedness, leadership strategies and more.

The event is open to the public and includes a networking reception. Space is limited. Registration is required.
