Through the course “Conversations in Global Health,” students were joined by the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy on Tuberculosis, Dr. Eric Goosby. Previously, Dr. Goosby has served as global AIDS coordinator and currently directs the Center for Global Health Delivery and Diplomacy at the University of California, San Francisco. Through this discussion, Dr. Goosby’s wide expertise offered insight on the discourse of international health issues today, including the epidemics of COVID-19, HIV/AIDS, and other infectious diseases. This dialogue knitted together the fabric of medicine, government, and society in creating a holistic approach to saving lives worldwide.
