Washington Global Health Alliance Discovery Series: “The Gun Violence Morass: Science Can Get Us Out of It”
With heightened public awareness of the impact of gun violence in our communities and schools, the debate continues around the benefits of approaching gun violence as a public health issue. Dr. Mark Rosenberg will speak on the “Gun Violence Morass” and how science can keep us safer. An expert in medicine and public health, ranging from infectious diseases, to injuries, and mental health, Dr. Rosenberg served 20 years with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including early work in smallpox eradication, enteric diseases, and HIV/AIDS. He was instrumental in establishing CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) and became the first permanent director in 1994, serving as director and Assistant Surgeon General until 1999. He has worked with President Oscar Arias of Costa Rica to organize a coalition to address road traffic injuries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. He is the CEO of the The Task Force for Global Health.
Lecture at 4:00 p.m., followed by a networking reception at 5:00 p.m. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Come join PIH | Engage to watch “How to Survive a Plague,” a film about the first AIDS activists who turned the disease from a death sentence to a manageable condition. Two coalitions, ACT-UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) and many self-made activists lobbied the pharmaceutical industry to develop and create drugs that reached patients in record time. With never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer in the midst of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of the activists.
Thursday, February 20 in the Allen Auditorium (Allen North, 181L). 6-8pm. See you there!
