Seminar: Global Perspectives on Population, Health and Environment

Monday, February 11, 2013 - 5:15pm to 6:45pm
0012 Westbrook

This public seminar will explore Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) as an advocacy movement, a development strategy, and an academic field. The discussion will focus on identifying the resources required to develop a robust PHE program at Duke (and at other universities), identifying the role that PHE will play in guiding the funding strategies of foundations and aid agencies, and determining the most fruitful intersections between the research and educational goals of a university-based PHE program and its role for funding promising interventions. Speakers will be: Sono Aibe (Pathfinder International), Alisson Barbieri (Brazil), Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka (Uganda), & Wilfred Mlay (Tanzania); Moderator: David Lopez-Carr (University of California-Santa Barbara). Reception to follow.

Co-Sponsors: The Africa Initiative, Duke Divinity School, Duke Global Health Institute and Nicholas School of the Environment
