Following decades of expansion and development, China is rapidly emerging as a world economic leader; however, much of the nation's growth has occurred at the expense of both its human populations and resident ecosystems. In recent years, the Chinese government has joined a chorus of local and worldwide researchers in their call for exploration of these mixed effects.
On April 21, the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, along with the Brown School of Public Health and the Watson Institute, will co-sponsor The China Forum on Public Health, Environment, and Public Policy. During this event, panelists and lecturers will discuss the public health challenges that China faces as well as the current state of human and environmental health research. Students, faculty, and visitors will have the opportunity to network with peers and mentors and forge collaborative relationships in order to tackle complex issues surrounding human health and wellbeing, environmental sustainability, and societal development.
The China Forum will take place from 9:00am - 5:30pm at The Hope Club. Amanda Lynch, Director of IBES, will make the Closing Remarks.
