Please join us on Tuesday, June 14, when Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil will host the next in a series of fora spotlighting the journal's work in the field of global health and a multi-year partnership with the World Innovation Summit for Health.
Building upon our September 2014 thematic issue, "Advancing Global Health Policy," and the April 2013 volume, "The Triple Aim Goes Global," the program on June 14 will explore major issues confronting the global health community. A highlight of the event will be a discussion of international health policy - led by Weil - among Victor Dzau, president of the National Academy of Medicine; Peter Pronovost, senior vice president for patient safety and quality at Johns Hopkins Medicine; and Lord Ara Darzi, surgeon, scholar and former UK Health Minister. Additional panels will look at cancer care, universal health coverage and innovation in health care.
