Fauci to kick off Hopkins public health series

A virtual chat with Dr. Anthony Fauci will launch the Johns Hopkins University’s Health Policy Forum, a new quarterly series of discussions designed to support the university’s engagement with key policymakers on matters of public health.

The forum, which will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 16, will be moderated by Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels and Ellen MacKenzie, dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and reflect on his nearly 40-year career as a leader in public health policy.

Johns Hopkins staff members, faculty, students, alumni, and members of the general public are invited to attend. Pre-registration is required.

The series is jointly sponsored by the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health, and the Carey Business School.
