2013 Joan H. Tisch Public Health Forum
More than 100 people gathered in person and virtually for the annual Joan H. Tisch Public Health Forum. The topic: Can City Food Policies Reduce Disparities? Lessons from New York and London.
Jennifer Raab, President of Hunter College, and Laurie Tisch gave welcoming remarks, and Sue Atkinson, the Joan H. Tisch Distinguished Fellow in Public Health at Hunter College, introduced the forum topic. Corby Kummer, Senior Editor at The Atlantic, then moderated a lively panel of Sue Atkinson, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner Thomas Farley, NYU Professor Marion Nestle, and Senior VP of The Vitality Group Derek Yach.
(Reposted from the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund because I really enjoyed this event. Great conversation, and was another reminder of why I love NYC; it values health and acts on that value.)
