Need a break from the gorgeous weather? There’s a science event for that.

Decarbonization in the Real World

  • Tuesday, March 16, 2021 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM, link here
  • “Leaders around the world have set goals to dramatically cut carbon emissions to achieve net-zero. The stakes are exceedingly high—the next decade will be crucial to stem catastrophic climate impacts associated with a 1.5- to 2-degree Centigrade rise in global climate. But how do we get there? Join Laurie Fitzmaurice and Peter Kelemen online as they discuss the stakes, and the realities around the push to decarbonize our planet. Moderated by Alex Halliday, Director, The Earth Institute.”

Medical Consent and the Vulnerable

  • Wednesday, March 17, 2021 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM, link here
  • “In Carte Blanche, Harriet A. Washington, author of the award-winning history of medical racism Medical Apartheid, tells a shocking story about researchers departing from what should be an inviolable ethic of informed consent before enrollment in medical research. Using a wide range of examples, Washington shows how subjects—disproportionately Black—are given experimental substances they haven’t agreed to, often with harmful results. This panel will be a discussion of the problem and what to do about it.”

Neuroscience and Global Health

  • Saturday, March 20, 1pm, link here
  • “Curious about neuroscience? Interested in global health? On March 20th at 1:00 PM EST, The Journal of Global Health will be hosting Dr. Jerome Chin (Adjunct Professor in the Department of Neurology at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine), James Giordano (Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Biochemistry at Georgetown University), Nirali Vora (Clinical Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University), and Sarah Tom (Assistant Professor of Epidemiology in the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health) in an expert panel to discuss their work within and their perspectives on the intersection of global health and neuroscience. We look forward to seeing you there!”
