Exploring Multidisciplinary Approaches to Complex Health Problems: The Global Tuberculosis Epidemic
Tuesday March 24th
1:30 - 5:00 PM
Cook College Student Center
New Brunswick, New Jersey
Addressing today’s complex global health issues requires both an understanding of the interconnected factors that impact individual and population health and the use of collaborative approaches spanning different disciplines and fields. This symposium will describe the global burden of tuberculosis, explore different factors that contribute to global health issues, and discuss how a range of different disciplines can contribute to solutions, using tuberculosis as an example.
Topics explored will include social determinants of health, policy, economics, scientific research and innovation, and community involvement and advocacy. The symposium will include a panel discussion that explores how multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches can be used in efforts to improve global health generally and specifically in global tuberculosis prevention, care and management.
A reception to foster networking and continued discussion of multidisciplinary approaches to global health will follow the symposium.
Advance registration is here and is appreciated, but not required.
