Summary

WHEN PUBLIC HEALTH MEANS BUSINESS, Part 2
Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Presented jointly by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the New England Journal of Medicine
Hosted by The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Michelle A. Williams, Dean of the Faculty at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is pleased to present Part 2 of the groundbreaking new series, “When Public Health Means Business.” 

The series continues with a stimulating examination of the best way forward. Public health and business must engage in order for both the economy and society to thrive well after the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Part 1 of this series established the case of how this unlikely — but absolutely necessary – partnership must join forces.

In Part 2, we will build on that framework, examining how the value created by public health is equal to if not greater than the shareholder value created in business; how are businesses to function while waiting for COVID-19 vaccines and treatments; and should we consider privatizing the public health system?

This multi-part series, “When Public Health Means Business” will virtually convene luminaries from the realms of finance, industry and health to map a new path forward and ensure a better, safer future for all. Jointly presented by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the New England Journal of Medicine, and hosted by The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, these virtual symposia will be presented on Zoom and live streamed on Facebook and additional places.
