Featured Keynote: “Can Treaties Protect Us From Superbugs and Pandemics?” with Carol Heimer (ABF Research Professor; Professor of Sociology, Northwestern University)

When SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) spread rapidly around the globe in 2002-03, many people didn’t fully understand how little global health governance systems could do to help.  In the intervening years, the International Health Regulations have been revised and strengthened.  But is this regulatory system up to the challenge of protecting public health from Ebola, Zika, Candida Auris, nuclear accidents, and the effects of climate change? Does the treaty solve basic collective problems of information and sample sharing, enforcement, and funding?

Lunch Available at 12:00 p.m.
Presentation to commence at 12:30 p.m.
