The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened a host of parallel and intersecting crises—unacceptable wealth and income gaps; lack of economic mobility and opportunity for Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color; inadequacies and inequities in health services, housing, transportation, and much more. In a way, the City of Boston’s extraordinary successes before the pandemic served to mask these crises from public view but the inequitable effects of the pandemic spurred new focus and energy around addressing the city’s crises. 

Join us on October 27 for a panel on the public health landscape following the COVID-19 pandemic and the opportunities for creating lasting systemic change in the City of Boston and beyond.

Opening Remarks: Paul Grogan, Hauser Leader, Center for Public Leadership; Former President & CEO, The Boston Foundation (2001-2021)

Moderator: Ken Himmelman, Executive Director, Center for Public Leadership

Dr. Gaurab Basu, Primary Care Physician; Co-Director of the Center for Health Equity Education and Advocacy, Cambridge Health Alliance; Instructor, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Sandro Galea, Dean and Robert A. Knox Professor, Boston University School of Public Health

Jennifer Valenzuela, Chief People & Equity Officer, Health Leads
