About the Vohra Miller Lecture in Critical Public Health Issues
The Institute for Pandemics at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health was formed in spring 2020 in order to tackle some of the most pressing issues associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, and to understand how to prevent future pandemics. A central goal of The Institute is to address issues of health equity associated with pandemics. As part of this goal, The Institute, along with its lead donors, the Vohra Miller Foundation, is sponsoring a lecture series that will feature preeminent scholars, policymakers, advocates, and others who are engaging in the science of pandemic-related health inequities, other critical public health issues, and in the translation of that science.
