Open to the Columbia Community
This year during the week of October 10th, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health is devoting a series of programming around public health equity – and inequity. Public health must move the needle forward on promoting and supporting health equity and ending health disparities for all populations. Our remit is not small: it's to build a healthy and just world.

Join the Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health and the Dean's Office for as we host a book launch for Scott MacMillan's Hope Over Fate: Fazle Hasan Abed and the Science of Ending Global Poverty, which tells the story of the founder of BRAC, an international organization based in Bangladesh that empowers people and communities in situations of poverty, illiteracy, disease, and social injustice.

The book launch includes a moderated panel discussion with BRAC and PopFam faculty. It will be followed by a reception with light refreshments from 5:30 PM- 6:30 PM.
