About the Paul Torrens Health Forum at UCLA

The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health is pleased to present the Paul Torrens Health Forum at UCLA. Named in honor of Dr. Paul Torrens (see column at right) who devoted his career to bridging the academic and practice worlds, this public program provides a venue to debate and discuss critical issues in public health.

Dr. Torrens began holding free monthly forums, now named in his honor, to bring together public health leaders, community groups, faculty and students. Today, the Paul Torrens Health Forum is a respected source of discovery and conversation about the prevailing public health issues of the day.

Recent topics have included transportation and homelessness through a public health lens. Featuring a panel of experts and a robust question and answer session, the Paul Torrens Health Forum draws a knowledgeable and engaged audience who cares deeply about the future of public health.
