The National Academy of Medicine (NAM), Rollins School of Public Health/Emory University (Emory), and the Association of Schools and Programs for Public Health (ASPPH) are co-hosting a free global health symposium, Learning from Ebola and the Future U.S. Role in Global Health, to discuss two important 2017 National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine reports on Wednesday October 18 from 2:00 – 5:30 p.m. at Emory University Rollins School of Public Health in Atlanta, GA.

The first panel on the Ebola report will include a review of provider experiences in the Atlanta region during the 2014 Ebola outbreak, and the second panel on the global health report will include an exploration of the current state of U.S. investments in global health and implications for the future. Speakers include Drs. Gerald Keusch (Boston University School of Medicine), Dr. Inger Damon (CDC), Dr. Bruce Ribner (Emory University School of Medicine), Michael Merson (Duke University), Dr. Dionisio Herrera-Guibert (TEPHINET), Dr. Anne Schuchat (CDC), and Dr. Carlos del Rio (Emory University Rollins School of Public Health and School of Medicine). Co-sponsoring principals, Dr. Victor Dzau (NAM), Dean Jim Curran (Emory), and Dr. Laura Magaña (ASPPH) will moderate and invite participants to engage with each other and the speakers.
