Dean David Allison will join other esteemed graduates of Vassar College to discuss how COVID-19 has illuminated other urgent public health issues.
David Allison, dean of the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington (IUSPH-B), is among several panelists who will contribute to a discussion of public health challenges in the context of COVID-19. The September 25 webinar, moderated by Vassar College President Elizabeth Bradley, includes Vassar alumni and experts in public health and will "address some of the most pressing public health problems of our time…[including] obesity, mental health, information technology, vaccine development, and public health education."
"I am honored to be included in such an esteemed group, to collaborate with my alma mater, and to be able to address these important topics in public health,” says Dean Allison.
Among the contributors are Leonard Friedland, a 1983 graduate of Vassar and current vice president and director of Scientific Affairs and Public Health at GlaxoSmithKline; and Micky Tripathi, another 1983 alumnus who serves as national coordinator for health information technology in the Office of Health and Human Services.
