Neoliberalism and Global Health
Guest Speaker: Salmaan Keshavjee, MD, PhD, ScM
Please join us for a engaging evening with Dr. Salmaan Keshavjee as he unpacks the influence of neoliberal economics on global health. Trained as a physician-anthropologist, Salmaan will use work from his recent book Blind Spot: How Neoliberalism Infiltrated Global Healthto lead us into a provocative conversation on how and who determines value in global health delivery, the structural forces that influence health and well-being in communities around the world, and strategies to promote health equity by confronting neoliberal narratives and assumptions.
