Princeton-Fung Global Forum: Modern Plagues

Nov 2, 2015  ·  9:00 a.m. 5:30 p.m.  ·  Dublin, Ireland

The Princeton-Fung Global Forums bring together colleagues from around the world to share views from a wide range of disciplinary and professional perspectives. This year's forum on global health will focus on the current Ebola crisis as a critical case study of a modern plague. Resolving the Ebola crisis requires a multidisciplinary approach involving not only public health and medical knowledge but an understanding of its economic, environmental, political and historical roots and consequences.

This conference will bring together all of these perspectives in the hopes of identifying methods for avoiding future crises. Several keynote speakers will help to frame the current crisis, and the panels will use the Ebola crisis as a framing mechanism to examine aspects of modern plagues more generally. Speakers come from academia, the government and non-governmental sectors as well as the media.

This event, held Nov. 2-3, 2015, in Dublin, Ireland, is open to the public. Registration is required.
