Dean Debra Furr-Holden
A new future for global health requires bold leadership and we cannot afford to be agnostic about it. With lessons learned from the most recent pandemic, we can and must focus on global health equity so that we do not lose ground on disease eradication and are better prepared to successfully handle emerging disease outbreaks. We are fooling ourselves to think we can wait another 100 years to prepare for the next pandemic.
- Debra Furr-Holden, Dean of the NYU School of Global Public Health
