Paul Torrens Health Forum | "The 2020 Presidential Election: What’s at Stake for Health?"

The outcome of the presidential election will determine our nation’s path forward on numerous health and healthcare fronts. As the nation continues to grapple with COVID-19, systemic racism, climate change and other critical public health issues, there’s much at stake. Join us for an insightful session moderated by Gerald Kominski, professor at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health professor and senior fellow at FSPH’s UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. The program will feature two health policy experts, Dr. Lanhee Chen of the Hoover Institution of Stanford University and Mark Peterson, professor of public policy, political science and law at UCLA, discussing the Democratic and Republican health platforms, their key policy implications, and how each reflects the party’s vision for the nation’s health. An optional small group networking session will follow the webinar.

About the Paul Torrens Health Forum 

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 who has 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.
