The Woodrow Wilson School is spearheading this year's Princeton-Fung Global Forum Nov. 2-3, 2015, in Dublin, Ireland. Designed to bring together colleagues from around the world, this year's forum will examine global health, using the current Ebola crisis as a critical case study of a modern plague. Several keynote speakers will help to frame the current crisis, and the panels will use the Ebola crisis as a framing mechanism to examine aspects of modern plagues more generally. 

You may notice in the agenda that several speakers are Princeton alumni, including Raphael Frankfurter ’13, executive director of the Wellbody Alliance. Raffi recently participated in a live online chat via a Google Hangout on Air, where he was interviews by João Biehl, the Susan Dod Brown Professor of Anthropology and co-director of Princeton's Program in Global Health and Health Policy. In case you missed it, check out the video below.

Wilson School alumna Kimberly Bonner '08, MPA '12 also discussed her on-the-ground work in West Africa. Kim was interviewed by Carolyn Rouse, a panelist at the Fung Forum and professor of anthropology at Princeton University. Check it out below.

Students get a special rate when registering for the conference, so be sure to take advantage. If you have an interest in global health, this would be a great way to interact with experts from across the globe.
