Global Health: Taking Stock of 'Neglected Diseases'

On Tuesday, April 13, SCU hosts Dr. Regina Rabinovich, who will address “Global Health: Taking Stock of ‘Neglected Diseases.’”

As director of the Global Health Program’s Infectious Diseases Development team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Rabinovich oversees the development and implementation of strategies for the prevention, treatment, and control of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and pneumonia, which have particular relevance to global health. Given that research and development costs are high and pharmaceutical companies have little incentive to make vaccines for poor countries, Rabinovich has embarked on a personal crusade to create awareness.

This presentation is the Gerald and Sally DeNardo Lecture.

The final installment of this year’s President’s Speaker Series begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Mayer Theatre. Tickets are free but required.
