Richard Wender, MD Talks about the Future of Public Health

On September 14th, we kicked off the 2022-2023 Penn Center for Public Health Seminar Series with the introduction of the new Executive Director, Richard Wender, MD. 

In his inaugural lecture, “The Future of Public Health: Meaningful Response in Critical Moments,” Dr. Wender issued a call to action–urging members of the Penn Center for Public Health community to recognize and remediate health inequities. He acknowledged that systemic racism and injustice undermine our community’s health and that academic-community partnerships are foundational to progress.
