National Public Health Week Community Discussion

Columbia Mailman School of Public Health is proud to participate in the American Public Health Association's annual National Public Health Week. Our community events, reflecting this year’s theme “Celebrating and Centering Cultures in Health,” brings together students, faculty and staff along with colleagues from our Northern Manhattan neighborhoods and Columbia University's Irving Medical Center. Presented in partnership with The Office of Diversity, Culture, and Inclusion (ODCI).

The panel discussion will feature local community leaders. The conversation will delve into the resources needed to foster and sustain true academic-community partnerships that reduce disparities and foster wellbeing in Northern Manhattan and beyond. This event will also be featured as part of CUIMC’s Interprofessional Education (IPE) Day.

Columbia University Faculty, Staff and Students may join in person. Non CUID holders may join virtually.
