Resolving epidemics like the Ebola crisis requires a multidisciplinary approach –involving not only public health and medical knowledge but an understanding of its economic, environmental, political and historical roots and consequences.
This is why Princeton University is gathering together some of the world's leading academic, public health experts and more at this year's Princeton-Fung Global Forum, "Modern Plagues: Lessons Learned from the Ebola Crisis."
This year's conference will bring together multiple perspectives in the hopes of identifying methods for avoiding future global health crises.
In this WooCast, we take a behind-the-scenes look at the forum, which will be held Nov. 2 and 3 in Dublin, Ireland. Joining us is Elisabeth Donahue, associate dean of public affairs and communications at Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School, one of the lead organizers of the event.
