Major advance have made towards improving health worldwide through the control and prevention of infectious diseases in the last century. However, rapid urbanization, globalization, climate change and an increasingly mobile society have created the conditions for spread of new infectious disease threats, as exemplified by outbreaks of SARS, Ebola and the recent Zika pandemic.
On September 5, Dr. Albert Icksang Ko, Professor of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at the Yale School of Public Health, will describe how our changing physical and social environment has shaped the emergence of infectious diseases. He will also discuss how researchers at Yale are applying innovation and novel analytical approaches to develop solutions for these new global health threats.
The language of the event will be English with simultaneous translation into Chinese.
Walk-ins are not accepted.
