  Guns, Obesity, and Opioids: A Population Health Science Approach to Contemporary Concerns
Apr 20, 2018 The First UCSF Colloquium on Population Health & Health Equity Co-Sponsored by the UCSF Executive Vice Chancellor & the UCSF School of Medicine Presented by: Sandro Galea, MD, MPH, DrPH Dean, Boston University School of Public Health Dr. Galea’s scholarship is at the intersection of social and psychiatric epidemiology with a focus on the behavioral health consequences of trauma, including firearms.

Examples of UCSF’s current efforts in population health and health equity will be discussed and opportunities for expanded impact explored. Everyone Welcome, but Space is Limited!
