Science journalist Lisa Palmer and Sandro Galea, dean at the Boston University School of Public Health, met for an in-person conversation on Galea's forthcoming book, The Contagion Next Time.
The Contagion Next Time details a health care reckoning for the United States and outlines public health measures that should be prioritized in order to combat the next pandemic.
Galea’s book explores two key issues: One is dismantling the structural inequality that exists in health care, and why addressing that issue can create a healthier nation. The second is improving and strengthening access to medical care, and redefining what healthy means. Galea and Palmer will touch on a few of these topics in their conversation.
