The extraordinary economic development in China during the past decades has led to rapid changes in lifestyles in contemporary Chinese population and also brought environmental deterioration. The Chinese government has called for investigation of the health impacts from these rapid changes and Chinese and foreign researchers have launched major initiatives to address emerging health threats.

The purpose of The China Forum on Public Health, Environment, and Health Policy is to bring together public health officials and scientists from China and Brown University to: 1) discuss the major current and projected future public health challenges in China; 2) understand the current state of public health research efforts in China and their implications on policy both in China and globally; and 3) create opportunities for interested students and faculty to develop new collaborations for further research, education, and training activities.

This Forum features top Chinese governmental officials who have a major role in shaping public health policy and leading researchers engaged in major public health research, training and teaching activities in China.

Registration is required.
