Brown School of Public Health Dean Dr. Ashish Jha is hosting an online forum with Dr. Anthony Fauci to discuss the challenges and responsibilities facing public health scholars during the pandemic.
“There is no one whose expertise is more valuable and more trusted right now than Dr. Tony Fauci,” Jha said. “I’m thrilled he is joining us to share his wisdom about how we fight this pandemic and keep people safe.”
