Medicine’s Next Frontier: The Power of Public Health

Sunday, August 7, 11:00am

Speaker Dr. Leana Wen

Included with Admission

 

Dr. Wen 011215 Official1

 

Dr. Leana Wen, Commissioner of Health in Baltimore City, will be speaking about the importance of addressing the social determinants of health because the well-being of a community is critical to its ability to thrive. She is working to make the Baltimore City Health Department a national model for a future where it is standard practice for public health leaders to collaborate with medical providers, businesses, schools, and almost every other sector to promote health and wellness.

 

As Baltimore City’s Commissioner of Health, Dr. Wen leads the oldest, continuously-operating health department in the U.S., with over 1000 employees. Her transformative approach to public health involves engaging hospitals and returning citizens in violence prevention and launching an ambitious opioid overdose prevention program that is training every resident to save lives. Following the civil unrest in April 2015, she directed Baltimore’s medical access and trauma recovery efforts.

 

A board-certified emergency physician, Dr. Wen received her medical training at Washington University and Brigham & Women’s and Massachusetts General Hospitals. She was a Rhodes Scholar, a Clinical Fellow at Harvard, a consultant with the World Health Organization, and a professor at George Washington University. She has been published over 100 articles including in The Lancet, JAMA, and Health Affairs. The author of When Doctors Don’t Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests, Dr. Wen’s work is regularly featured on NPR, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. Her TED talk on transparency in medicine has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times.

 

This program is part of our “In the Service of Health” series, a celebration of the work of public sector providers of care.
