Description: “Global Health" is the new buzz phrase for traditional public health writ large. It encompasses everything from acute infectious diseases to chronic maladies, all of which can become border-crossing epidemics of microbial or behavioral origin. Dr. Alfred Sommer, Dean Emeritus of the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and University Distinguished Service Professor of Epidemiology, Ophthalmology and International Health at Johns Hopkins University, has spent a lifetime crossing national boundaries and medical disciplines. He will discuss some of his more memorable interactions, and their present day relevance, ranging from the containment of infectious epidemics to the prevention and treatment of blinding diseases.
