Guns, Obesity, and Opioids: A Population Health Sciences Approach to Contemporary Concerns 

Keynote: Sandro Galea, MD, MPH, DrPH, Dean, Boston University School of Public Health 

Dr. Galea's scholarship is at the intersection of social and psychiatric epidemiology with a focus on the behavioral health consequences of trauma, including firearms. He has published more than 700 scientific journal articles, 50 chapters, and 13 books and is widely cited in the lay press. His latest book, Healthier: Fifty Thoughts on the Foundations of Population Health was published by Oxford University Press in 2017.  

Dr. Galea's keynote will launch the discussion on how a leading academic medical center like UCSF can harness scholarship, education, and clinical care to tackle society's thorniest problems - problems that prevent us from achieving levels of health and well-being that we know are possible for all. Examples of UCSF's current efforts in population health and health equity will be discussed and opportunities for expanded impact explored. 

Everyone is welcome, but space is limited. Please see link above to RSVP by May 25.  

Co-sponsored by the UCSF Executive Vice Chancellor & the UCSF School of Medicine.
