Election's Effects On Health Care Reform: New Harvard Public Health Forum Webcast

What comes next? After today's election, that is, for health care reform? Experts will try to answer that question in a Harvard Webcast this Friday at 1:30.

We don't normally post calendar events, but this one marks the "soft launch" of a high-profile new Harvard institution that aims to become a forum on some of the most burning topics in public health.

In fact, it's called "The Forum at Harvard School of Public Health," and you can learn more about it here. In brief, it's meant to be "an exchange focused on health issues and controversies of current concern to decision-makers around the world."

Says the forum's director, Robin Herman: The Harvard School of Public Health has built a state-of-the-art broadcast facility for webcasts and videoconferences in its main building and plans to have live (and on-demand) webcasts around compelling health issues that require immediate decision-making.

The next Forum event will be its "official ceremonial launch" and is scheduled for Dec. 9 with philanthropist Ted Turner in conversation with Dean Julio Frenk on how to meet UN development goals for global health.

This program aired on November 2, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
