BU hosts Global Urban Health Summit on campus

By Stacey Milton

We’ve met many students during our admissions travels who are interested in the areas of medicine and public health. Here is an interesting story from BU Today about a new global health initiative that is being led by Boston University:

“The future of public health is urban health. That was the consensus among researchers at the Global Urban Health Summit hosted by BU’s Center for Global Health & Development (CGHD) October 28. Public health experts from universities in the United States and abroad explored strategies to meet the overwhelming health challenges of the urban poor, from New York City to the slums of New Delhi and Nairobi. The meeting, held at the Hotel Commonwealth, also marked the launch of BU’s Global Urban Health program, which will add new talent and an expanded research agenda to the center.”
