Ebola Lecture Coming to the University of Utah

The William H. Leary Lecture is an annual event at the University of Utah.  The public lecture will happen tonight — March 10th — from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Sutherland Moot Courtroom at the law school. It will examine lessons learned from Ebola, as well as the appropriate roles for international organizations such as the W.H.O, World Bank, and United Nations Security Council if such an epidemic strikes again.
The West African Ebola epidemic caused thousands of deaths, many of them avoidable. What if a health response had been better coordinated? The Ebola epidemic has become a pivotal moment for the World Health Organization, spurring its need for fundamental reform. The keynote speaker at this lecture will be Professor Lawrence Gostin of Georgetown University. Gostin directs the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.  He is also a professor at medicine at Georgetown University; professor of public health at the Johns Hopkins University; and director of the Center for Law & the Public’s Health at Johns Hopkins and Georgetown universities.
We need to keep working together as communities to find better solutions before another health crisis emerges.
