Description

Led by the Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI), Outbreak Week was a University-wide effort to commemorate the 1918 influenza pandemic that killed more than 50 million people around the globe.

As the capstone of Outbreak Week, this full-day conference featured a keynote address by Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and a special session with Ron Klain, the Ebola response coordinator for the Obama Administration. Panel sessions featured experts from government, academia, research, and industry discussing mitigating risks, disease surveillance, and public-private partnerships.

This event was free and open to the public.
