The Center for Strategic and International Studies Presents:
The Launch of the Global Health Security Agenda
1:00 – 2:00 pm (EST)
February 13, 2014
2nd floor Exxon-Mobil Conference Room
From CSIS: Please join us as Dr. Thomas C. Frieden, Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Ms. Laura Holgate, (invited) Senior Director, WMD Terrorism and Threat Reduction, National Security Council, discuss the administration’s launch of the new Global Health Security Agenda. It is a timely opportunity to hear directly from them about the GHS Agenda’s genesis, key elements and future implementation.
It is also the occasion for the NGO sector to engage with Dr. Frieden and Senior Director Holgate and add their voice. Independent scientific, security and health experts will offer their perspectives on the GHS Agenda, including how they might in the future best contribute substantively to it. On the dais, kicking off that conversation will be Deborah Rosenblum, NTI, Kavita Berger, AAAS, Tom Inglesby, UPMC, and Nigel Lightfoot, CORDS. We are delighted that their respective organizations are, along with CSIS, co-sponsors of this event.
